South Africa awaits announcement of new ANC leader

Voting continued in the African National Congress leadership election Monday morning, after running through the night, with over 4,000 party delegates needing to cast their ballots.

A winner is expected to be announced later in the day, with either deputy president Cyril Ramaphosa or former health minister Nkosazana Dlamini-Zuma taking the helm of South Africa’s most powerful party.

South Africans are hoping whoever wins will chart a new course for the ANC after years of damaging corruption scandals under President Jacob Zuma. Dlamini-Zuma is Zuma’s ex-wife.

The new party leader will contest presidential elections in 2019, and despite some disillusionment with the party 23 years into the country’s democracy, the ANC is still massively popular.

  1. Hello there! Do you know if they make any plugins to protect against hackers? I’m kinda paranoid about losing everything I’ve worked hard on. Any tips?

  2. Its like you read my mind! You appear to know a lot about this, like you wrote the book in it or something. I think that you can do with some pics to drive the message home a bit, but instead of that, this is magnificent blog. An excellent read. I’ll definitely be back.
