Motshekga was speaking at the league's national policy conference in Johannesburg.

"So we have to prepare you, so as to also enable men to deal with loss of power because this thing is about loss of power. So we have to negotiate a way through to get to the tipping point that by the time we get there, all of you are there," she said.

According to the report, the ANCWL had not attached a time frame to its ultimate takeover of the party and the country.
