ANC 2017 Elective Conference

Words you will hear today: Change my Masina (Mzwandile)

The African National Congress is still very split, but already we are seeing members change their tune when it comes to their loyalties or past statements.

Jonathan Fairbairn says the words you will hear today is 'change my Masina', inspired by Ekurhuleni Mayor Mzwandile Masina, who stated in October that he would leave his role as mayor if Cyril Ramaphosa was elected president of the ANC.

Now, it seems he's had a change of heart.

He 'changed my Masina'. Now he has come out and said 'I'm very happy with the outcome, I've worked closely with the ANC president Ramaphosa and I will continue to work with him.'

Jonathan Fairbairn, 702 producer
