The ANC yesterday downplayed the call by its youth wing that the ruling party's president Jacob Zuma should be reinstated as the country's deputy president.

President Thabo Mbeki fired Zuma last year after his former financial adviser, Schabir Shaik, was found guilty of fraud and corruption.

On Monday the ANC Youth League (ANCYL) in Limpopo called for Zuma's reinstatement.

Yesterday ANC spokesman Tiyani Rikhotso said "as a constitutionally elected structure of the ANC, the ANCYL had the democratic right to make such a call".

He, however, reiterated that the prerogative to appoint and sack members of the cabinet lay with Mbeki.

The call for Zuma to be reinstated followed an announcement by Mbeki that he had no intention of reshuffling his cabinet.

Mbeki's statement came amid speculation that the Zuma faction within the ANC wanted Kgalema Motlanthe to be absorbed into the government
