On December 20, the ANC will conclude its national elective conference by electing its 14th president in its 105 years of existence. There are eight potential candidates to replace President Jacob Zuma and while some of them will take the race down to the wire, others are rank outsiders.
Independent Media’s political team will profile each of the candidates, in no particular order, in the run-up. This week we profile, Mathews Phosa.
