President Jacob Zuma was admitted to hospital for tests on Saturday, the presidency said.

“Yesterday President Zuma was advised to rest following a demanding election and transition programme to the new administration,” his spokesman Mac Maharaj said in a statement. 

“Doctors are satisfied with his condition.”

Zuma was on Friday also ordered by the ANC’s national executive committee (NEC) to take a break from his duty. 

The party would not say how long his break would last. –Sapa
