Who to watch at #ANCpolicy – Tokyo Sexwale

2012-06-25 16:57

Human Settlements Minister Tokyo Sexwale will use

this conference to gauge support for the “Anything but Zuma” (ABZ)

campaign and to try his best to show delegates he is presidential


His failed attempt at the presidency during the run-up to the Polokwane conference in 2007 will do him no favours, while his generous wealth divides comrades into two groups – those who got a bit of his billion-dollar cherry and those who didn’t. Both are bitter. The former because he might call on them for voting favours now, and the latter because they were not remembered when the going was good.

Sexwale is well aware his presidential bid will be stillborn, but he wants to put himself in line for a position in the top six – the ANC’s top leadership.
