The apparent forerunner in the race for the ANC presidency, Cyril Ramaphosa, announced his deputy during a North Transvaal meeting.
Ramaphosa asked ANC members to elect minister Naledi Pandor as deputy president of the ANC if they would vote for him as president. According to Ramaphosa, Pandor has no skeletons in the closet and is competent in her work.
He is also in favor of Gwede Mantashe as chairman of the ANC, believing that former ANC chairman in Natal, Senzo Mchunu, will be a suitable secretary general for the ANC.
Meanwhile, Jacob Zuma has stated that he is not available for the position as leader of the ANC in December and warned that he will then be an ordinary ANC member who can say what he wants.
