He made the announcement in a televised address to the nation on Wednesday evening.

Earlier, Mr Zuma's governing ANC party told him to resign or face a vote of no confidence in parliament on Thursday.

His resignation came at the end of a long speech in which he said he disagreed with the way the ANC had acted towards him.
