2012-04-03 16:06

Johannesburg - Media converged on the foyer of the ANC's Johannesburg headquarters, Luthuli House where the party's top officials were expected to address reporters on Tuesday.

ANC staff, except security, were asked to leave the foyer to make way for the media.

There was a heavy police presence outside the building in the Johannesburg CBD.

President Jacob Zuma, his deputy Kgalema Motlanthe, Treasurer Mathews Phosa, Secretary General Gwede Mantashe and deputy secretary general Thandi Modise were expected to address the media.

      Total waste of time. Nothing new. They don't like disunity. Won't commit to taking action against Malema... and on and on and on...

    The suspense is killing me.... ZZZZZZZZZ

  • Sandile - 2012-04-03 16:15

    Either Zuma is going to say he is not running for a second term or Kgalema is going to say that he won't be standing for the ANC presidency elections. It will be a call for unity within the party

      Anthony - 2012-04-03 16:27

      good call

  • JasonMichelleVanderbijlpark - 2012-04-03 16:16

    Probably announcing another way of taking our hard earned money!

  • Khanyi - 2012-04-03 16:16

    Could it be about Mandela???

      Anthony - 2012-04-03 16:28

      perhaps they are recalling zuma--as they did mbecki

      Jackie - 2012-04-03 16:34

  • cyanideandhappiness - 2012-04-03 16:16

    That was a very interesting, extensive, well researched and excellently presented news report, well done News24...

  • Brian - 2012-04-03 16:17

    Or it could be that Malema has been expelled without any further right to appeal, I guess.

      Brian - 2012-04-03 16:43

      Oh look, ANCYL supporters (because, let's face it, they are practically a separate party now) don't like my post. Haha. Shame. Seems he is busy talking about discipline though... so... psych!

  • EricksonTL - 2012-04-03 16:17

    expel this germ at the helm of the YL, for good and for all

  • Piet - 2012-04-03 16:23

    I think they might be announcing that corruption is 100% legal in South Africa now.

      Stephen - 2012-04-03 16:27

      It's not theft; it’s just a culturally different way of doing business.

    The gloves are now off, Malema, Kgalema, Ramaphosa are going to openly open the leadership race, after this media briefing. Zuma is now a dead snake!!

  • Etienne - 2012-04-03 16:28

    The ANC will no longer accept Ricoffy as an acceptable means of caffeine intake and will instead be installing espresso machines at all government buildings.

  • Shirley - 2012-04-03 16:32

    They have found a cure for the corruption virus from which they are all dying?! Rule of thumb-the bigger the press conference-the more bull$%!t!!

      Anthony - 2012-04-03 16:36

      Shirley - 2012-04-03 16:43

      Anthony: They must think long and hard before they do that,it will scare off the few remaining tourists we have!
