PRESIDENT Jacob Zuma yesterday downplayed the contest for the ANC presidency between him and his deputy Kgalema Motlanthe, saying it was part of the party’s democratic processes. “We go to a conference of the ANC to discuss ANC issues. Members are given the opportunity to choose their leaders. That is not fighting. There is no fight. We go to Mangaung to have our conference and come back even stronger and [more] united,” he insisted.
