Johannesburg - The ANC has influence over mining sector policy but has not been helpful in this area, ANC official and former economic development minister Enoch Godongwana said at the Joburg Indaba held in Sandton on Wednesday.

Godongwana was highlighting the role of the ANC government in making the mining industry a key driver of the economy.
