ANC 2017 Elective Conference

'Dlamini-Zuma will be the continuation of Jacob Zuma's legacy'

Political analyst, Professor Susan Booysen says while President Jacob Zuma was lauded during the early days of his tenure, he has had a 'devastatingly negative' impact on the African National Congress (ANC) and South Africa.

Looking at President Zuma's legacy, Booysen says the 'chickens have come home to roost'.

Jacob Zuma came in with great hopes. There was so much anticipation of him reconnecting with people despite the 783 charges that were there, with hopeful re-connection after the Thabo Mbeki cold era, but it soon turned bad.

She says at the start of his term, he was lauded for showing that the state does not rule over the political party.

But when he made the party rule over the state he fused it, and he didn't just capture many state institutions, but he also captured the ANC, and that is such sadness for the ANC. There was no internal or external accountability, the ANC virtually went into a state of demise electorally.

Prof Susan Booysen, Political analyst

She says if Nkosazana Dlamini-Zuma is elected this will be the continued legacy.

She is a continuous associate. She has been extremely lukewarm if taken any position of note at all on capture, on Jacob Zuma's transgressions and on his efforts to stay out of court. She has not been convincing on that front, so I have little doubt that should she be elected, she will regarded, both by many in the ANC and the electorate, as the continuation of the Zuma book...

Booysen insists Dlamini-Zuma will make sure the President remains out of court.
