The Africa Report - - POLITICS -

“It was a very pow­er­ful ad­dress by Mam [Nkosazana Dlamini-] Zuma. It res­onated with stu­dents and the au­di­ence in Kwazulu-na­tal. We were im­pressed by her rad­i­cal­ism and she re­minded us of how im­por­tant ed­u­ca­tion is.” ANC Youth League spokesman Njab­ulo Nzuza Af­ter care­ful con­sid­er­a­tion and open­ing our eyes as wide as pos­si­ble, Cde Nkosazana Dlamini-zuma is the only suit­able can­di­date at this point in our his­tory to lead the African Na­tional Con­gress in De­cem­ber 2017.” African Na­tional Con­gress (ANC) Women’s League of­fi­cial state­ment “She is a step ahead of any po­ten­tial can­di­date or com­peti­tor like Cyril [Ramaphosa] or any an­other can­di­date. Yes, she could be­come the pres­i­dent of ANC and the coun­try but it means the Premier League will have the to­tal­ity of the top six [po­si­tions] of the ANC [...] She might be the pres­i­dent with­out the power. She has to learn to love the Premier League agenda. There is no other way.” Writer and po­lit­i­cal an­a­lyst Ralph Mathekga “She has her re­sumé and some peo­ple feel she is the right per­son. We re­spect that. Is she gen­uine? She re­ally can­not think we take her se­ri­ously with this rad­i­cal eco­nomic trans­for­ma­tion talk.” Sizwe Pamla, speak­ing on be­half of the Con­gress of South African Trade Unions
