JOHANNESBURG, Feb 13 (Reuters) - The Secretary-General of South Africa's African National Congress, Ace Magashule, said on Tuesday the party would deal with the issue should President Jacob Zuma refuse to step down as head of state as ordered by his party.

"We will deal with that matter," Magashule said when asked by reporters what the party would do if Zuma refused to heed the edict from his party. He did not elaborate. (Reporting by James Macharia and Alexander Winning; Editing by Ed Cropley)
