CityPress - - Front Page -

Lead­ing cam­paign­ers for Nkosazana Dlamini-Zuma to be­come pres­i­dent of the ANC have shifted into a dif­fer­ent gear, fo­cus­ing on erad­i­cat­ing a per­cep­tion that sup­port for her is equiv­a­lent to sup­port­ing Pres­i­dent Ja­cob Zuma.

City Press has learnt that, fol­low­ing the bruis­ing pol­icy con­fer­ence, sup­port­ers of Dlamini Zuma are still con­fi­dent she will be crowned pres­i­dent at the De­cem­ber con­fer­ence, but have de­cided that she must over­come the per­cep­tion that she is Zuma’s proxy – with­out alien­at­ing his sup­port base.

In Kim­ber­ley in the North­ern Cape yes­ter­day, So­cial Devel­op­ment Min­is­ter Batha­bile Dlamini said it was “re­ac­tionary” to say that “if you elect Dlamini-Zuma, you are elect­ing Zuma”.
