Ramaphosa extends lead at branch level as Dlamini-Zuma wins KZN
The NEC remains split between the two leading ANC presidential candidates
Nkosazana Dlamini-Zuma bagged the bulk of the branch nominations from her home province KwaZulu-Natal on Monday, but she still lags her main rival, ANC deputy president Cyril Ramaphosa.
The province gave her 433 nominations to Ramaphosa’s 193. There were 56 abstentions.
But despite these gains she failed to outdo her main rival. Ramaphosa extended his lead earlier in the day when his home province, Limpopo, handed him 391 branch nominations compared to Dlamini-Zuma’s 104.
The two meetings drew the branch nomination process and provincial general councils in the nine provinces to a close. But there could be reruns of disputed meetings, which have to be settled by Saturday.
There are also some outstanding legal processes.
