ANC 2017 Elective Conference

When nominations at ANC’s ‘terrible, but awesome’ conference can begin

702/CapeTalk presenter Eusebius McKaiser interviewed veteran journalist Karima Brown and Carien du Plessis, acting Politics Editor for The Huffington Post South Africa, at the 54th ANC elective conference on Sunday.

They discussed the latest news from the floor, such as:

  • When the nominations process can begin;

  • The proposed constitutional amendments;

  • “Fatiguing” the other side;

  • Sihle Zikalala;

  • NDZ and corruption.

For more detail; listen to the interview in the audio below (and/or scroll down for quotes from it).

It’s terrible but it’s awesome!

Carien du Plessis

Leadership positions available for contestation needs to be resolved before the nominations process can begin.

Karima Brown

The NEC has all the power in between conferences… The top-6 wants to influence the organisation in between conferences… For me, those are the drivers of these constitutional amendments on the floor…

Karima Brown

You try to fatigue the other side into surrendering…

Carien du Plessis

It is actually babysitting… You watch if there’s anyone showing any sign of hesitation…

Karima Brown

Once you’re on the ballot, the branches get to decide… They can take your money and still do what they want to do…

Karima Brown

I want to know what Zweli Mkhize is going to do… Is the NDZ slate going to make space for him?

Karima Brown

She is not exactly the people who surround her. She’s been a lot cleaner in terms of corruption allegations. The last one [corruption scandal involving NDZ] was Sarafina 2 in 1996.

Carien du Plessis

Sihle Zikhalala is not a clean player. I would not want to meet him in a dark corner.

Carien du Plessis

(The quote right above this line incorrectly stated "Zweli Mkhize". It now correctly states "Sihle Zikhalala".)
