This comes amid talks of an impeachment process against him and a vote of no confidence.
Opposition parties said on Monday they were confident that a motion of no confidence would succeed in the current political climate.
Should the motion, succeed, Zuma and the entire Cabinet will be removed and an interim president be appointed. Elections would then have to be held within 90 days.
