Now that the African National Congress' new top six leadership has been announced, and candidates for the party's National Executive Committee (NEC) finalised, the party delegates are engaging in commissions.
This part of the conference involves discussions which will lead to policy resolutions being taken by the party.
Stephen Grootes spoke to veteran Dr Sydney Mufamadi to discuss the most important policy issues that should be resolved at the conference, and how the party's newly elected leadership can lead the ANC forward.
This is an opportunity to make a fresh start, intertwine the ANC once more into all these organisations in civil society that has a role to sensitise the ANC to the issues bothering our people. Issues that must be taken on board when formulating policy,— Dr Sydney Mufamadi, ANC veteran
Mufumadi says he sees no reason for President Jacob Zuma to remain president after the conference.
We don't know why he should stay for one more day after this conference, he know he has got nothing of value to add toward what the ANC is trying to do.— Dr Sydney Mufamadi, ANC veteran
