The situation was promising to be messier than previous campaign because Ramaphosa’s opponents are planning to deprive him of a second term.

The battle for the soul, not just the presidency of ANC, is underway, as the two main party factions fire early warningshots to level the playing fields for a bruising campaign of dominance heading towards the party’s December elective conference. The process began to get more interesting as President Cyril Ramaphosa’s supporters increased the tempo for hissecond term campaign.

TOM EATON | Why the outrage at ANC polyp Sisulu’s passion to be president?It’s inevitable in a country where no one is held accountable Busy with character assassination now ?

ANC chief whip reads riot act to RET MP over bid to nail Ramaphosa in parlyMervyn Dirks wants Ramaphosa to address allegations of misuse of state funds, but the chief whip is having none of it Anyone who stands up against MfanaKeMfana is quickly rounded up by his hunting dogs & called names. For how long shall politicians disguised as journalists continue to run amok in this country?

Paul Mashatile to hold the fort in ANC SG office until Jessie Duarte recoversANC treasurer-general Paul Mashatile has been given the responsibility of overseeing the functioning of the ANC secretary-general office while Jessie Duarte is on sick leave. Boring news 😴 Mxm SG failed to pay staff and SG onyabe kanje even his speech there is no sense Anc is dead stellenbosch kill Anc every day sometimes they act like they support cupcake but they know they kill Anc for DA but DA is disappointing also and no intelligence in current Anc leadership The man who knows nothing of corruption on the Alex project and didn't pocket 2$m intended for the party, is a stand in for the bombastic, threatening Jesse Duarte. A good call I guess.

EFF and ANC withdraw their candidates from Joburg council meetingAfter four 30-minute break requests, demands for water, umpteen objections to the vote by show of hands, the EFF and ANC have left building. Why dont anc and eff withdraw from the entire political scene so that the country can move forward.

ANC chief whip reads riot act to RET MP over bid to nail Ramaphosa in parlyMervyn Dirks wants Ramaphosa to address allegations of misuse of state funds, but the chief whip is having none of it The big problem of CyrilRamaphosa is a BIG liar 🤥. He(Cyril) said State Capture is over, state Capture is not over especially in the SOEs. Do we have a political party called RET? We know that they r in a pay roll everybody has a price 🙄🙄🙄

There are still good people in ANC but circled by RET hyenasRET crooks and thieves don't care about poor people. In public they pretend to be caring about the poor people but in their hearts they are harbouring contempt for them. Like in every life situation, there is the good and the bad and there is a fine distinction and always we must strive to defeat the bad and make prominent the good.Great insight Makweru. What's wrong with demanding economic transformation? Lol, gud ppl in anc, ret/cr17 is the same thing, they are fighting for opportunity to pillage.

The battle for the soul, not just the presidency of ANC, is underway, as the two main party factions fire early warning shots to level the playing fields for a bruising campaign of dominance heading towards the party’s December elective conference. The process began to get more interesting as President Cyril Ramaphosa’s supporters increased the tempo for his second term campaign. Minister of Justice and Correctional Services and A has become the second top party leader to give his support of a second term for Ramaphosa as ANC president after Limpopo premier Stanley Mathabatha. That has set the tone for the upcoming battle for the number one spot at the helm of Africa’s oldest liberation movement, which boasted the likes of Nelson Mandela, Oliver Tambo and chief Albert Luthuli as its former presidents. The situation was promising to be messier than his previous campaign because Ramaphosa’s opponents are planning to deprive him of a second term. His lieutenants were ready to stop the plotting with a counter attack. The campaigns by both sides started early because another ANC NEC member, Tourism Minister Lindiwe Sisulu , put her name into the hat last week. She launched a muted campaign with the anti-judiciary message often pronounced by the radical economic transformation (RET) faction within the governing party. Sisulu particularly lambasted the constitution, black judges, the rule of law and the ANC’s failure to address black poverty. ALSO READ: Ramaphosa ‘dead cert’ for second term She received flak within the ANC, as well as from the opposition and the judiciary itself, with some calling on Ramaphosa to fire Sisulu as minister. Sisulu made no secret about her intention to challenge Ramaphosa for the ANC presidency for the second time. She and six others lost the last race to Ramaphosa, who beat close contender Nkosazana Dlamini-Zuma by a tiny margin. Lamola’s public support for Ramaphosa’s return was no surprise. He had been on the president’s side from his tenure as deputy president and acting president of the ANC Youth League. He was among those who marched to Luthuli House to call on former president Jacob Zuma to step down following the Nkandla saga in 2016. In a recent interview with The Citizen, Lamola’s said his politics were inspired by leaders like Mandela and Ramaphosa in the 1990s, which prompted him to participate in student and youth politics at a young age. Some identified him as a future ANC president. Ramaphosa’s deputy David Mabuza remained a dark horse who could spring a surprise in December, as he did at Nasrec. But political analyst Gakwi Mashego said Mabuza’s support in Mpumalanga had been weakened by infighting among his former fellow ANC provincial executive committee members. Read more on these topics
