BBC: ANC decides Zuma must go13 February 2018 | 15:22 | FOCUS News Agency
The decision to "recall" him "urgently" followed marathon talks of the ANC's top leadership body.
Mr Zuma, 75, agreed to step down, but only in the next three to six months, the official added.
Mr Zuma, who has been in power since 2009, has been dogged by corruption allegations.
But he has resisted increasing pressure to quit since December, when Cyril Ramaphosa replaced him as leader of the ANC.
Ace Magashule, the ANC's secretary-general, told reporters the ANC's National Executive Committee (NEC) decided the removal should be "treated with urgency".
"It is obvious we want Comrade Ramaphosa to come in as the president of South Africa," he added.
