As the African National Congress December conference draws closer, many politicians are being looked at for potential candidates for presidency. What we know for sure is that president Cyril Ramaphosa has a lot of packing for his second term but The RET faction also wants its candidates to go against Ramaphosa for presidency. It has been revealed that not a single person has been chosen by the RET faction but there are 3 ANC members that have been shortlisted.
According to an article by city press, the 3 candidates for contest for president on the RET faction side are Nkosazana Dlamini-Zuma, Lindiwe Sisulu and Zweli Mkhize. What is most surprising is that the former minister of health is part of this list even after what he was accused of doing.
This is because the ANC in KwaZulu-Natal is still pushing for him to make it to the top 6 of the party. The most favourable candidate amongst these 3 has to be Dlamini Zuma. She was chosen as a presidential candidate back in 2017 but she obviously lost to Cyril Ramaphosa. Now some believe Lindiwe Sisulu had a higher chance of getting it after her latest stunt.
It's going to be very interesting when December comes and the elections need to take place. This is simply because people are very unsure of who will become the next president of the ANC, especially after the major criticism Ramaphosa has been getting from the supporters. The RET faction last had a president with Jacob Zuma and they hope they win this spot again.
What is your take on the matter? Who do you think will win?
