JOHANNESBURG - The head of one of South Africa's top anti-corruption agencies, widely seen as an ally of President Jacob Zuma, has resigned after only two weeks in the job, the latest in a series of high-profile departures.

Opponents had accused Zuma of encroaching on the judiciary's independence by naming Willem Heath, his former legal adviser, to lead the Special Investigating Unit.
