"Heated debate over economy a proxy battle for succession fight" #ANCNPC

Day four of the African National Congress National Policy Conference (ANC NPC) is believed to have ended in an alleged spat between delegates, over a heated debate about South Africa's economy.

Debating issues of economic transformation on Monday, political analyst Karima Brown says several sources claim delegates from Kwazulu-Natal 'very forcefully' tried to relay their views.

We understand that there was in fact a very harsh exchange of ideas and an attack on Derek Hanekom who eventually had to apologise because he was saying the debate was useless, and this we got from delegates who attended the session.

Essentially the fight was around trying to conceptualise and define what the major challenge was and the instance on the part of some of the delegates from Kwazulu-Natal that the problem is white monopoly capital. A lot of other ANC delegates arguing that the problem is monopoly capital.

That debate is inconclusive at this stage... I suspect that the fireworks that we saw in that commission yesterday will in fact carry over to the plenary.

Karima Brown, political analyst

Some people saying a lot of the discussion is very superficial and that it is in fact just a proxy battle for the succession debate.
