JOHANNESBURG – African National Congress (ANC) Youth League leader Collen Maine says that the candidate they will back as ANC leader in December will send shock waves through the party.

He's said in an interview with the news agency Reuters, that the ANC needs a bold leader to launch a second revolution that will distribute wealth to the black majority.

In an interview, Maine says their choice of candidate will shock the ANC, in what could be an indication of they won’t back Cyril Ramaphosa or Nkosazana Dlamini-Zuma.

He says the candidates that have been mentioned before have been part of the system and that this is a system they want to change.

Maine says they want bold leadership and second revolution that will cause ruptures in the economy.

He also says that every ANC leader has failed to deliver on the promise to transform South Africa.

Over the weekend the ANC Women’s League said it would formally nominate Dlamini-Zuma for the position of ANC leader in December.
