SA ready for female president, says Zuma
The ANCWL recently announced that it is backing Nkosazana Dlamini-Zuma to succeed Zuma as party leader.
Zuma is being interviewed on three SABC Setswana radio stations.
The ANC Women's League (ANCWL) recently announced that it’s backing Nkosazana Dlamini-Zuma to succeed Zuma as party leader.
But Congress of South African Trade Unions (Cosatu) has endorsed Deputy President Cyril Ramaphosa, saying that traditionally, the ANC's deputy takes over from the president.
But Zuma says tradition must not be confused with ANC policy.
He says it’s important that women are represented in the top 6.
“The ANC has led the charge in promoting the empowerment of women. And they’re in key leaderships outside and within government. In the ANC, this is no longer an issue.”
