KWAZULU-NATAL - President Jacob Zuma is expected to get a warm reception at the South African Communist Party’s (SACP) conference on Friday morning, after the party on Thursday said it was indeed satisfied with the current African National Congress leadership.

Earlier this week there scuffles broke out at a church in Limpopo where Zuma delivered a lecture on Nelson Mandela as party of the ruling party's centenary celebrations.

The SACP's announcement on Thursday was the strongest signal yet that it will back Zuma for a second term.

SACP General Secretary Blade Nzimande also wants Zuma to ban labour brokers.

“Part of the campaign is to say, no company will get a government tender for infrastructure if it uses labour brokers.”

He is opposed to changing the way the party elects leaders.

“The first attempt to change our internal leadership or lateral processes to some kind of US presidential primary elections.”

Nzimande is seen as close to Zuma and backs his bid for a second term as ANC president.
