What kind of ANC is going emerge after the conference? Karima Brown

Political analyst Karima Brown says the numbers between the two frontrunners, Nkosazana Dlamini-Zuma and Cyril Ramaphosa, are close as the the provinces are finalising nominating their preferred candidate.

Reports suggest provinces are working behind the scenes to ensure an uncontested battle between the two front runners.

However, Brown says it is not clear how unity within the ANC will be achieved.
