Dlamini-Zuma says that her surname was never a problem until she was nominated for president

Nkosazana Dlamini-Zuma has announced that whether or not she wins the national elective conference next month, she will continue working for the ANC.

Dlamini-Zuma could possibly be the the first woman to lead the party and has been preaching unity since accepting her nomination.

She told a full stadium at a mini-rally for the ANC’s Women’s League in KwaMhlanga yesterday that the losers of the elections should work with the winners to move the party forward.

In a one-on-one interview with Independent Media, when asked if she would work with Ramaphosa if he won the elections, she simply replied that Ramaphosa doesn’t own the party and that as a member of the ANC she will continue working as she is a cadre of the organisation.

Briefly.co.za learned from IOL that Nkosazana has faced overloads of criticism regarding her campaign, but she has lashed out at her critics saying they are determined to ruin her image because she carries the Zuma surname.

She states that in all her previous positions her surname was never an issue, but now that she is running for president everyone has a problem with it.

Dlamini-Zuma says she forced her children to keep the surname to keep their identity and that she will never change it.

The ANCWL and ANCYL have both fully endorsed the presidential candidate but some have distanced themselves from her campaign and will not fund it.

She has said her aim is to focus on the difficulties facing the country which includes poverty, unemployment, inequality and violent crime. She believes South Africa as a whole must focus on these problems and ways on how to resolve them.
