Will ANC alliance partners kiss and make up at the Alliance Political Council?

The African National Congress is holding a two-day meeting with its alliance partners, under the Alliance Political Council.

The senior leaders of the ANC, SACP, Cosatu and the South Africa National Civic Organisation (Sanco) are discussing relations among the alliance members and also issues affecting South Africans and the state of the economy.

In the alliance, surprisingly the president of the ANC has actually managed to take a clean slate because you look at how SACP, Cosatu and Sanco were the first people to come out and say we support this man to be the president of the ANC.

Ramaphosa came into the presidency when the alliance is so divided. They were not happy with the ANC, they were accusing the ANC of treating them like a stepchild.

The party itself is divided but when you look at the alliance they look to be sort of like a united division.

Manyathela says the only problem the alliance seems to have is whether they have bought into this new dawn that Ramaphosa brought.

They are against the VAT increase, they are against former president Jacob Zuma taking part in the election campaign.
