From the parties political conference, analysts warn that not much must be read into the apparent defeat of ANC leader Jacob Zuma’s group.

Zuma opponents are delighted with the defeat of replacing the term “white monopoly capital” with only “monopoly capital.” This would indicate that the Zuma opponents appear stronger from this debate where nine of the 11 committees won this round.

In a surprising turnaround, the delegation of Mpumalanga has cast its support to the five provinces seen as Ramaphosa supporters, pushing the Zuma camp back to Natal, Free State, and North West.

However, another surprise is expected, and it is Baleka Mbete’s open approach to the leadership struggle. She has not yet announced her entry into the race, but she has already indicated that she is available. She has already held talks at the conference with branch and regional governments who want her to be president.

It is already clear that Nkosazana Dlamini-Zuma is not coping well in the leadership battle with Mbete seen as a possible compromise candidate. Zuma need not lose sight of his comment that he thinks it’s time for a woman to rule the country, while Ramaphosa will not be a loser against the Zuma camp. However, it is known that Mbete also has great ties with Zuma.
