Sisulu: Joining Ramaphosa not a compromise
Lindiwe Sisulu failed to garner enough support for her presidential campaign, but she's well in the running for the number two position.
Sisulu failed to garner enough support for her presidential campaign, but she's well in the running for the number two position.
From the onset, Sisulu refused to be part of a slate, saying that it would destroy the culture of the ANC.
Sisulu says she ran a lone campaign.
“The factions that attached themselves to that are not good for the culture of the ANC. I actually ran a lone campaign. I’ve learnt a lot from that and it is doable.”

Now, Sisulu and Ramaphosa have joined forces hoping to win over the majority of voting delegates at the national conference.
“There is no compromise. We are just going to the delegates to say we are now in one campaign.”
However, she's up against Mpumalanga provincial chairperson David Mabuza, who has secured the most nominations for the deputy president position.
