ANC 2017 Elective Conference

Maimane: I'm looking forward to taking on Ramaphosa in 2019

DA leader Mmusi Maimane says he's ready to take on new counterpart, ANC president Cyril Ramaphosa, in the build up to the 2019 general elections.

Maimane says Ramaphosa is partly responsible for the state of the governing party because of his years defending and being staunchly devoted to President Jacob Zuma.

I'm looking forward to taking on Cyril.

The organisation is split down the middle.

The fact that the ANC is held up in a meeting to try and dispute where 68 votes ate gone tells you everything you need to know.

Mmusi Maimane, DA leader

My impression of the current leadership structure is that it's possibly the same bus, new driver, but same direction really.

Mmusi Maimane, DA leader

I'm actually looking forward to 2019.

Mmusi Maimane, DA leader

If you can't run your own conference properly, how on earth can we entrust you to run everything properly?

Mmusi Maimane, DA leader

I'm not convinced that the ANC can self-correct, regardless of who you put there.

Mmusi Maimane, DA leader

Quite frankly it can't self-correct; it didn't and it won't after this conference.
