This happened after a meeting between Zuma and the ANC's new top six leaders on Sunday night at the presidential guesthouse in Pretoria.
South African President Jacob Zuma should step down, a senior ruling African National Congress official said, raising fresh pressure on Zuma who has been weakened since Cyril Ramaphosa became ANC leader in December.
The delegation is reportedly working on instruction from the ANC's national executive committee and the national working committee - both of which want Zuma gone as president.
The timing of the motion of no confidence later this month took into account a busy Parliamentary schedule, including a February 8 State of the Nation address to be delivered by the president, according to Mbete's office. "The ANC top six have held them at president Zuma's guesthouse".
These include‚ among others‚ surveillance of members of parliament‚ Zuma's call that the most recent motion of no confidence‚ in which several ANC MPs voted for his removal‚ be done by an open ballot and Friday's threat of a civil war by the "Hands Off Zuma" campaign - led by Black First Land First and Unemployed People's Trust.
Former ANC spokesperson Keith Khoza tweeted that this week would be critical for the ANC.
If he is not recalled by his party this week or removed by parliament, he will continue to serve as the country's president until mid-2019 when his second five-year term comes to an end.
Before the ANC went to it's national conference at Nasrec, Johannesburg, the party met with the clergy to ask for prayers, Mantashe said.
On Friday‚ opposition parties said the ANC's failure to convince Zuma to relinquish power would be an indication that the party was unfit to govern.
"We are not going to that meeting to humiliate President Zuma or to rough handle him. We are asking for you to pray for us, so that there is peace in that meeting".
Two different groups are also expected to march to Luthuli House on Monday, one calling for Zuma to be left alone and the other gathered to protect the ANC's headquarters.
