Dlamini-Zuma: Future ANC leader must be respected
Nkosazana Dlamini-Zuma was speaking at a prayer session on Friday in Pietermaritzburg.
PIETERMARITZBURG - African National Congress (ANC) national executive committee (NEC) member Nkosazana Dlamini-Zuma says the movement will come out stronger if there is overall acceptance and respect given to the candidate elected as president this December.
Dlamini-Zuma was speaking at a prayer session on Friday in Pietermaritzburg.
The Moses Mabhida region has expressed its full support for the former African Union chair and officially welcomed her back home after her tenure in Ethiopia.
She called on religious leaders to pray for the ANC so that the party speaks with one voice and unites.
While the unofficial presidential candidate did not share the challenges causing divisions, she did say whoever is chosen in December must be respected.
Added to this, Dlamini-Zuma asked for prayers for those who don’t succeed at the elective conference, so that they’ll set aside their differences and work with the new leaders.
The former AU chair also urged communities to work with government officials to address social ills, such as substance abuse, rape and teenage pregnancy.
