Monday 8 January marks the 106th anniversary of the African National Congress.
The party's newly elected leadership will meet with stakeholders including various traditional leaders on the electoral and policy outcomes of its 54th elective conference as part of a roadshow this week.
The National Executive Committee under Cyril Ramaphosa's leadership will convene on Wednesday for the first time.
Political analyst Karima Brown gives a run through some of what may be on the agenda.
One of the things that the ANC NEC must do is fine tune the January 8 statement, it has already asked both its allies and other formations to give it space to deal with some of the important issues including of course how to deal with President Jacob Zuma going forward.— Karima Brown, political analyst
Cyril Ramaphosa having to walk a very tight rope, he has to continue with the message of unity to ensure that the result is accepted, we know that there are potential court challenges.— Karima Brown, political analyst
The January 8 rally will take place this weekend in East London.
Brown also analyses the meeting some of the newly elected ANC Top Six held with Zulu King Goodwill Zwelithini over the weekend, saying they were "preaching the gospel of unity." This is in response to the sensitive issue of two centres of power with Zuma still president of the country, she adds.
