What does the national conference of the ANC mean for the average South African? Mandy Rossouw explains, in easy and engaging fashion, how Zuma replaced Mbeki, how we got from the shock at Polokwane to daggers drawn at Mangaung – and who got us here.
Rossouw charts how the national conference will be put together, and why what happens at Mangaung will impact on our every day, whatever our political affiliations.
The personalities focused on:
Jacob Zuma – the incumbent
Kgalema Motlanthe – the contender
Tokyo Sexwale – the smooth operator
Cyril Ramaphosa – the dark horse
Zwelinzima Vavi – Cosatu secretary and kingmaker
Fikile Mbalula – the Razzmatazz showman
Malusi Gigaba – Zuma’s cheerleader-in-chief and a future contender
Julius Malema – and how he changed the ANC for good
