"If Dlamini-Zuma wins we're likely to see the biggest split in the ANC" analyst

5 July 2017 6:03 PM

Wednesday marks the 5th day of the ANC national policy conference.

As the African National Conference (ANC) national policy conference came to a close, news broke that the Integrity Commission wants President Jacob Zuma to step down.

At the start of the conference, Matuma Letsoalo, the Mail and Guardian's political editor said it presented "an opportunity for the governing party to develop sound policy proposals to get South Africa out of its economic quagmire, caused in part by decisions taken by President Jacob Zuma."

Letsoalo joined Africa Melane to share his take on the conference and whether it has managed to be more than just a platform to sort out succession issues and leadership squabbles.

I don't think this will be a solution. I'm sure the president is also worried about his legacy.

Matuma Letsoalo, Mail and Guardian's political editor

While delivering his closing address at the conference Zuma said he was prepared to visit the party's branches in each province, on the need to have two deputies saying this is a vital move.

Letsoalo says Zuma also highlighted the loss of great cadres in Limpopo. He goes on to say that people are questioning Zuma's proposal and whether it is democratic. If they don't run with the presidents suggestion, then they will do what they have always resorted to and let the branch elect their preferred presidential candidate says Letsoalo.

Letsoalo further explains that Zuma's proposal contradicts with his statement at the opening of the conference when he said the branches hold the powers to elect and fire leaders they want.

If Nkosazana Dlamini-Zuma wins we're likely to see the biggest split in the ANC.
