JOHANNESBURG - Human Settlements Minister Tokyo Sexwale's office refused to comment on reports on Sunday that he planned to challenge President Jacob Zuma for the African National Congress’ (ANC) top job at the end of the year.

The Sunday Times newspaper reported he had decided to run with what was being described as an “anyone but Zuma ticket”.

Sexwale had previously run a campaign ahead of the ANC's Polokwane conference but abandoned his bid before the conference started.

Sexwale's spokesperson Xolani Xundu chose his words carefully when asked if Sexwale was going to run.

“The minister I’m sure will respond to these reports, at the right time and on the right platform. As things stand right now we respect the process.”

If he does run, Sexwale might be pinning his hopes on what is called the “anyone but Zuma camp”, a group of ANC members frustrated with the president's performance.

However, this weekend's developments could also force Deputy President Kgalema Motlanthe to make a decision on whether he will also throw his hat into the ring.
