Coverage plans for the ANC national elective conference

Posted on: Mon 08 Apr 2013

It’s 100 years old and the African National Congress is about to begin its most crucial National Conference yet. Mangaung 2012 will see either President Jacob Zuma or Deputy President Kgalema Motlanthe lead the ANC for the next five years. Struggle icon Cyril Ramaphosa could finally get his chance and become the new Deputy President of the party. Whoever wins, whoever loses, eNCA will be there.

From 11 to 21 December the eNCA reportering team, the Channel’s senior anchors and some of South Africa’s top political analysts will keep viewers engaged and informed.

eNCA reporters, Hajra Omarjee, Belinda Moses and Nkululeko Ncana will be on the ground to provide coverage from Mangaung, delivering firsthand accounts of the action as it unfolds.  Political analysts Aubrey Matshiqi and Ebrahim Fakir, have been invited to give detailed analysis and evaluate what the implications of the decisions reached at Mangaung will have for South Africans beyond 2012.

From December 15 the Channel’s Senior anchors Iman Rapetti, Justice Malala and Jeremy Maggs will facilitate lively discussions about the current political climate and the state of the ruling party.

But it’s also fun. To offer the lighter side of a tense political atmosphere, Late Night News with Loyiso Gola’s famous puppet Chester Missing’s special edition will feature entertaining interviews with top politicians.

eNCA will round off the Mangaung coverage by interviewing ordinary South Africans about the outcome of the conference.

Will the ANC leave Mangaung reformed and united or divided and wounded?
