The league seems to think the outgoing AU commission chair has been ‘heading 54 African states’, so running one country, SA, will be a piece of cake.

Outgoing African Union Commission chair Nkosazana Dlamini-Zuma received her strongest endorsement in KwaZulu-Natal that she should succeed her former husband President Jacob Zuma as the leader of the African National Congress.

Thanduxulo Sabelo, the ANC Youth League’s KwaZulu-Natal secretary speaking at a political rally in KwaMashu where Dlamini-Zuma was the keynote speaker, said: “What we are saying as the ANC Youth League is that we are ready for a woman president. She is heading 54 African states. What is a country? Really?”

He said that the ANC in KwaZulu-Natal was leading the charge to ensure that women filled key positions.

“We believe, even the ANC, not only in government, can be led by a woman.”‎
