Mantashe unhappy ANCWL broke ranks, declared Zuma's successor - senior reporter

9 January 2017 7:56 AM
ANC Women's League has officially endorsed Nkosazana Dlamini-Zuma to run for the presidency during December elective conference.

Mail & Guardian senior reporter Pauli Van Wyk kicked off the new feature on Xolani Gwala's breakfast Show, The Political Desk.

Van Wyk says the African National Congress's (ANC) elective conference to be held in December will dominate political news in 2017.

Van Wyk also reflects on the ANC's 105 celebrations held in Soweto yesterday.

She says it was very clear that ANC Secretary General Gwede Mantashe was not happy with the ANC Women's League announcement of endorsing Nkosazana Dlamini-Zuma to succeed President Jacob Zuma.

She says this unhappiness might be an indication that Mantashe and Treasury General Zweli Mkhize are not happy with the ANCWL choice.

Because they broke ranks and kind off disturbed the idea of unity.

It also tells us that Ramaphosa and Mkhize are not in the Dlamini-Zuma faction.
