Minister of Police, Fikile Mbalula, said Nkosazana Dlamini-Zuma was destined to become the first female President of the African National Congress (ANC).
Taking to twitter on Tuesday, Mbalula said Dlamini-Zuma was an outstanding candidate, adding that she would add considerable value to the governing party and to the country as a whole.
Radical Economic Transformation (RET) has become a major theme of the ANC in 2017. However, it has really captured the imagination of team Dlamini-Zuma, which has spread the gospel of RET aggressively throughout her campaign.
Mbalula is convinced that Dlamini-Zuma will deliver on that mandate.
“Nkosazana has not only embraced RET she is articulating it very well. We are tired of apologists and fork tongued leadership,” said Mbalula via his twitter feed.
Dlamini-Zuma is involved in a serious bunfight with Cyril Ramaphosa to become the next President of the ANC and she received a massive boost in KwaZulu-Natal on Tuesday, where her overwhelming support from the region was confirmed.
“Nkosazana the choice of our mothers, the choice of the future in the Anc history beckons. #ContinuityAndChange It is about time,” added Mbalula.
Mbalula said Dlamini-Zuma could not be corrupted, adding that she was decisive and more than capable of carrying out the national democratic revolution.
