Zuma leadership and ANC's future dominated 2016 news agenda
The recent NEC meeting deliberating President Jacob Zuma's future has set the wheels in motion for the 2017 news agenda.
According to EWN reporter, Clement Manyathela, talks of possible succession battle between Nkosazana Dlamini-Zuma and Cyril Ramaphosa will heat up over the next couple of months.
The motion of no confidence brought by Minister Derek Hanekom, which was allegedly supported by Jackson Mthembu and Ministers Aaron Motsoaledi and Thulas Nxesi, has been a blow for Zuma's leadership.
I don't think it was a good year for President Jacob Zuma... not when his own colleagues in the NEC called on him to step down.Clement Manyathela, EWN reporter
A consultative conference is expected to be held in 2017 to unite the party ahead of the much-anticipated elective conference.
However, it remains a mystery how the African National Congress (ANC) will survive the years of political scandals that have knocked public confidence in the party under Zuma's leadership.
They are hoping that the consultative conference will bring everybody together, deal with the issues and come out as united as ever.Clement Manyathela, EWN reporter
