The battle lines have been drawn - Karima Brown

Tensions over President Jacob Zuma’s cabinet reshuffle are expected to dominate the African National Congress’ National Working Committee (NWC) meeting on Monday.

This is the first time that ANC leaders meet following angry reaction from some of the top six leaders after Zuma reshuffled his cabinet.

On Friday Secretary General Gwede Mantashe expressed his unhappiness, saying the party was not consulted on the decision, while Deputy President Cyril Ramaphosa made it clear that he was opposed to former Finance Minister Pravin Gordhan’s axing.

Political analyst Karima Brown says there is a strong movement in and outside the ANC to challenge Zuma.

Its very clear that there is a pitch battle going on within the African National Congress and its allies.
