Ramaphosa and Dlamini Zuma neck and neck in ANC presidential race

The African National Congress (ANC) in Kwazulu-Natal nomination results have been adjusted following a query, pushing up Nkosazana Dlamini-Zuma's numbers with 433 branches backing her to become the party's leader.

This, however, is not enough to give her the majority.

Political analyst Karima Brown explains why this is a very tight race and its likely to go down to the wire.

The tally that people are sitting with does not include the NEC at this stage and then there is the phenomenon of what is called super branches, as you know a branch needs to have a maximum of 100 members so some branches are much larger than others so they get more delegates to the conference.

At this stage it appears by all accounts that Mr Ramaphosa is in fact slightly ahead but it 's a neck on neck race, a tight race and of course because they have not decided on enlarging that top six we still need to hear from provinces.
