Check who has begun the presidential campaign for the ANC. Will she be the first female President?


While the 2022 ANC conference is still some 15 months away, it seems like there is a great sense in which the 2022 ANC conference is likely going to be hugely-contested, judging by how factionalised the party has been in recent years. So far South African people knew with certainty that former President Jacob Zuma's son, Duduzane Zuma launched his campaign. And thus far, he already has been at various media houses to outline his agenda.

However, besides, Duduzane Zuma, Lindwe Sisulu has reportedly just began her presidential campaign for the ANC.

According to the Independent news, Lindwe Sisulu's name was raised by various regions and sub regions across the length and breadth of the country. It would seem, according to the Independent News that, some ANC women's league regional structures have back Lindiwe Sisulu to run for the presidency.

Lindwe Sisulu is currently serving as Minister of Tourism since August 2021. It remains to be seen how will things unfold in the coming days or weeks.

Since the dawn of democracy, South Africa has never had a female President. And now with the announcement of Lindiwe Sisulu, it will be interesting to see how far her campaign will go for being the president of the ANC.

However, at this point in time, the focus is for many South African political parties is on winning the upcoming local government elections. It must be remembered South Africa will be heading to the polls on 1 November, for local government elections. And many political parties have aleady launched their manifestos.
