PRETORIA - ANC Secretary General Gwede Mantashe has lashed out at party structures already endorsing their preferred candidates for party president.

This comes after the ANC Women's League publicly backed outgoing AU Chairperson Nkosazana Dlamini-Zuma for the position.

Mantashe called the move premature.

The women’s league says Dlamini-Zuma has shown exceptional leadership qualities.

Last year Cosatu threw its support behind Deputy President Cyril Ramaphosa.
