Human Settlements Minister Lindiwe Sisulu, an ANC presidential candidate, says the ANC Women’s League is wrong in endorsing Nkosazana Dlamini-Zuma to succeed President Jacob Zuma. Speaking during an interview with the SAfm on Monday morning, Sisulu said anyone nominated by ANC branches can contest for the party’s presidency. "First the ANC Women’s League said it is now time for a woman to lead the organisation. Then they said the only woman who is qualified and ready to lead the ANC is Nkosazana Dlamini-Zuma," Sisulu said. "I think it is wrong for them to say that. It is not only wrong, it is also undemocratic. Any candidate who is nominated by the branches can go to the ANC conference and stand for the position," she said. Sisulu enters the ANC presidential race just five months before the ANC elective conference in December. President Jacob Zuma has endorsed Dlamini-Zuma — a former African Union leader and also his ex-wife — to succeed him.
