Pandor might not bring in the numbers - political analyst
Political analyst Ralph Mathekga says Science and Technology Minister Naledi Pandor is a reasonable choice of candidate, to serve as presidential hopeful Cyril Ramphosa's deputy president.
On Sunday, Ramaphosa announced his preferred team with KwaZulu-Natal ANC chairperson Senzo Mchunu as Secretary-General, current Secretary-General Gwede Mantashe as chairperson and Paul Mashatile as Treasurer-General.

Mathekga says while Pandor will inspire confidence in Ramaphosa's campaign, he is concerned Pandor will not bring in the numbers.
I think she can actually inspire confidence in the leadership of Ramaphosa if they succeed.Ralph Mathekga, political analyst
I thought that maybe he will pick one of the people who are part of the leading pack, that is Zweli Mkhize and Lindiwe Sisulu, at least those people have been able to galvanize a constituency already.Ralph Mathekga, political analyst
