Doctors have advised President Jacob Zuma to rest after he was admitted for tests on Saturday.

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
