Cape Town – Radical economic transformation will be the “key badge of entry” into the ANC faction aligned with presidential hopeful Nkosazana Dlamini-Zuma, according to Peter Attard Montalto, emerging market economists at Nomura.

Around 3 500 delegates will gather in the south-west of Johannesburg from Friday to Wednesday for the ANC’s five-yearly National Policy Conference.

Although radical economic transformation has been discussed for at least the last decade at ANC policy conferences, it is likely to take central stage this time around, said Montalto. “Not for ideological reasons but as a defining political wedge to split the party and drive an agenda to electoral success for the Dlamini-Zuma camp in December and then in the general elections in 2019.”
