JOHANNESBURG - The ANC has begun briefing the media on strategy and tactics following various commissions held at the party's 54th national conference.

The ANC’s Fikile Mbalula says there’s been a robust debate on a range of policy matters.

These range from gender equity in the top six officials, giving the party’s integrity committee more powers and managing campaign funds.

He’s been briefing the media at Nasrec.


The ANC’s national conference has resolved that the Judicial Commission of Inquiry into state capture be established as soon as possible.

Delegates to the conference also backed other policy decisions, which could see the ANC taking action to root out corruption and wrongdoing within its ranks.

“Implement the national executive committee (NEC) resolution on state capture, including the establishment of the Judicial Commission of Inquiry,” Mbalula said.

Mbalula also addressed the emergence of two centres of power in the ANC; with President Jacob Zuma as head of state and Cyril Ramaphosa as party leader.

He says the ANC’s national executive committee will have to manage the “two centres of power”.

“The NEC should manage the two centres of power after the national conference.”

The announcement of its new national executive committee members is awaited.
