ANC 2017 Elective Conference

WATCH: Ramaphosa incorruptible, will lead ANC to self-correction - Mthembu

Click here for more coverage from the 2017 ANC Elective Conference.

ANC chief whip Jackson Mthembu says he voted for ANC presidential candidate Cyril Ramaphosa and five other "incorruptible leaders" for positions in the party's top six.

He also supports Lindiwe Sisulu for deputy ANC president and Senzo Mchunu for secretary general.

Mthembu says Ramaphosa has a high moral standing and has not looted money from the state or private sector.

He says the ANC needs saving and the elective conference provides an opportunity for the party to do so.

Mthembu argues that the governing party needs a moral leadership that will steer the party back to its values.

He says that if Ramaphosa does not win, the party will have missed an opportunity to take the ANC back to its former glory.

There hasn't been any self-correction. This conference provides an opportunity to do that.

Jackson Mthembu, ANC chief whip

There is a spirit of hope that this conference will deliver the ANC we know. Back to its original values.

Jackson Mthembu, ANC chief whip

For the ANC to self-correct we need a leadership with political will.

Comrade Cyril Ramaphosa has not looted any cent from the state or from the private sector.

Jackson Mthembu, ANC chief whip

You need these people of high moral standing to take the ANC back to its values.

Jackson Mthembu, ANC chief whip

When you don't have leadership with high morality, how on earth do you self-correct?

Jackson Mthembu, ANC chief whip

Listen to him in conversation with Azania Mosaka at the conference in Nasrec:
