Zuma will 'ensure seamless handover' to new ANC leadership

Zuma will 'ensure seamless handover' to new ANC leadership”

But he used his address as a platform to take ownership of the radical economic transformation narrative.

It is being hosted at the Gallagher Convention Centre in Midrand over the next two days.

"We therefore reject the incorrect and patronising assumptions by some sections of society that radical economic transformation was developed by a company from London".

He said the ANC had‚ at its national conference of 2012 in Mangaung‚ formulated the policy of radical socio economic transformation.

"We need to unite as a nation and ensure that we face the challenges together and find solutions together, as we build a prosperous South Africa", Zuma said.

Zuma said he knew there was a lot of anxiety from business about what would transpire at the conference.

Mahlobo also told the organisations that the Energy Indaba was not meant to address the IRP in any way‚ shape or form - instead it was for business‚ labour‚ and government to discuss ways to reinvigorate the energy sector in order to stimulate economic growth.

"Let me assure you that everything possible is being done to ensure a successful conference and transition to the future", Zuma said.

Zuma who earlier joked and informed delegates at the Energy Indaba that he was extremely happy that by the end of the conference, he will no longer be leader of the party, said he would work with all comrades and colleagues to ensure a successful and seamless handover to the new leadership.

Zuma kept his cards close to his chest on nuclear plans, merely saying that if SA has the raw material, it must also have an opportunity to benefit from it.
