The race to follow Jacob Zuma as ANC leader is stepping up and Cyril Ramaphosa’s campaign against Nkosazana Dlamini-Zuma is gaining momentum.

The ANC left wing, especially the SACP and Cosatu, confirmed their support for Ramaphosa. The support for Dlamini-Zuma’s from the ANC Women’s League and Youth League means only 10% of the votes of the voting college.

A political analyst reports that the influence of the Gupta brothers cannot be taken into account as they benefit from a candidate who is “susceptible” to monetary compensation.

Meanwhile, Mathews Phosa confirmed again that he would be available for the post if he gets to be nominated.
