The ANC is holding its annual policy conference.
This year’s policy conference takes place amidst unprecedented turmoil in the fractious ruling party.
There’s the looming succession battle, the weakening of the tripartite alliance, an economy in recession and state capture by the Guptas who are, according to political analyst Daniel Silke, virtually a fourth pillar of the governing alliance.
