Zuma should now be answerable to Luthuli House, says commission
The commission on organisational renewal is worried about mismanagement now there are ‘two centres of power’, as well as the age of ANC Youth League members
The ANC’s national conference wants President Jacob Zuma, as head of state, to be answerable to Luthuli House now that he is no longer at the helm of the party. Following discussions in the commission on organisational renewal at its national conference‚ the ANC resolved that power must now be vested in the ANC presidency at Luthuli House and not in the state at the Union Buildings. This means Zuma would have to take instructions from his deputy in the state but newly elected president of the ANC, Cyril Ramaphosa. The report-back on this commission was led by Febe Potgieter.
