JOHANNESBURG, South African President Jacob Zuma has conceded that the ruling African National Congress (ANC) has a problem when it comes to implementing some of its policies.
Speaking to journalists on the sidelines of the ANC Policy Conference here Monday, Zuma, who is also the ANC president, expressed confidence that the party would rise to the challenges it was facing.
With delegates locked in debates over policy matters at the ongoing policy conference, Zuma spoke about the challenges of factionalism, divisions and corruption confronting his party.
“This policy conference is in a sense looking for solutions to challenges that face us and we are crafting them as we discuss and taking decision that were not there before,” President Zuma said, while also expressing satisfaction with the quality of debate at the conference and the quality of the delegates.
“This policy conference is going very well and I think everyone agrees when we say the results are going to be wonderful, and the recommendations therefore to the (ANC) national conference in December, are going to take us very far forward because ANC branches are debating.”
Zuma, who is expected to close the conference on Wednesday, said the ANC had been frank in dealing with issues of self-introspection.
