South African President Jacob Zuma will miss a cabinet meeting on Tuesday as he continues to rest after being admitted to hospital for health checks over the weekend. A presidency statement said "President Jacob Zuma continues to rest at home this week and will not attend the Cabinet Lekgotla." Zuma was admitted to hospital for tests on Saturday and was released the following day as doctors were satisfied with his condition. The hospital stay followed an announcement from his office on Friday that the 72-year-old would take a few days off from public appearances after a tiring campaign for a May 7 election in which he was elected for a second term.
