Which province will be next to dump ANC?: iLive

Robert Nicolai, Howick | 19 December, 2012 00:05
President Jacob Zuma

NO SURPRISES as Jacob Zuma is elected, with an overwhelming majority, for a second term as ANC president.

Only time will tell if another R40-billion of our GDP is going to be "incorrectly allocated", Limpopo textbooks are delivered, the spy tapes are released, our economy creates more jobs and the Gauteng e-tolls shut down the roads of the economic hub.

Let's see what results the 2014 national elections deliver. It might be easier to rig Mangaung votes than general election votes.

Fortunately for Zuma, he is the only ANC president who knows how to recover from losing a province to the opposition. But which province will be lost next? Gauteng? Free State? North West?

As only time will tell, the newly elected ANC leadership will have to select new projects carefully.
