Zweli Mkhize says he can unify ANC after elective conference

Current African National Congress (ANC) treasurer general and presidential hopeful Zweli Mkhize says he has the required experience to unify the party after its 54th national elective conference in December.

Mkhize says if he is elected to lead the ANC he will bring a balanced form of leadership to the party and would focus on healing the divisions which have been exposed in the run-up to the elective conference.

The ANC will elect new leaders in less than 50 days when its 54th National Elective Conference takes place from the 16th to the 20th December in Johannesburg. Cyril Ramaphosa and Nkosazana Dlamini Zuma are widely tipped as the favourites in the race to become the next party president.

Briefly.co.zalearned from Eyewitness News that Mkhize believes the experience he gained while serving on the Provincial Executive Committee (PEC) of KwaZulu-Natal coupled with his current position will help him to lead the ANC to new highs.

Mkhize said the next president of the ANC would need to focus on unifying and strengthening the ANC before turning his or her attention to ensuring that government is run more efficiently.

He said that party unity has become one of the most important talking points within in the ANC.

Some political experts believe that Mkhize is the only candidate capable of unifying the ANC after the elective conference. He has built a brand which is beyond reproach and has also managed to stay politically neutral.

This neutrality would enable him to reach across to all factions without being accused of favouritism.

In recent weeks Mkhize has risen above Lindiwe Sisulu as a potential deputy to Cyril Ramaphosa. Reports indicate that ANC branches are enamoured with his clean reputation and have noted that he would play a critical role in ensuring that the ANC retains control of the government after the 2019 elections.
