JOHANNESBURG - The ANC is briefing the media for the first time since reports emerged of a so-called election "War Room".

The party's been accused of running a campaign to discredit opposition parties ahead of the local government polls.



Recordings have emerged, suggesting ANC General Manager Ignatius Jacobs was aware of the "War Room’s" work and discussed how it should be funded.

The party's leadership also discussed its strategy and expectations ahead of next week's State of the Nation Address and the party's succession race.

Weekend reports suggest ANC heavyweight Jeff Radebe is the latest to throw his hat into the ring.

It's also been reported that former Eskom CEO Brian Molefe could become Finance Minister.
