Jeff Radebe ready to be the next ANC president

JOHANNESBURG – African National Congress (ANC) national executive committee member Jeff Radebe says the fact that at least five names have been thrown into the presidential race shows that the party is democratic.

Radebe was speaking in uMdoni on KwaZulu-Natal’s lower South Coast, where he was officially endorsed.

Radebe says he will accept any deployment given to him by the ANC and if he is nominated to become president next month, he is ready.

The nomination process in the ANC will officially get underway next month.

Deputy President Cyril Ramaphosa has also been endorsed by some branches in this area.

A few weeks ago, the KwaZulu-Natal ANC stripped the lower South Coast region of its executive powers, but branches will still be able to host meetings.

On Thursday, former provincial ANC chair Senzo Mchunu was in the area, calling for the branches to support Ramaphosa.

Radebe says the fact that there are many presidential hopefuls shows democracy within the organisation.

“It’s the structures who are the final arbiters of any decision. It’ll be the branches that do the nominations and the branches that will do the voting at the elective conference.”
