Dlamini-Zuma has assured her supporters that she would not allow the conference to collapse and whatever the final outcome is, it will be accepted by all those in the party according to iol.co.za.
As Cosatu and the SACP move to contest the elections in 2019 by forming an alliance against Dlamini-Zuma if she wins in December adding to the misfortunes of the ruling party.
