Candidates vie to succeed Zuma as head of South Africa's ruling ANC

There are seven candidates for the party leadership. But only two are seen as having a real chance of winning: Deputy President Cyril Ramaphosa, 65, who is favoured by the business community, and former cabinet minister Nkosazana Clarice Dlamini-Zuma, 68, a one-time chairwoman of the African Union Commission and President Jacob Zuma’s ex-wife. Zuma, whose term expires in 2019, has endorsed Dlamini-Zuma to succeed him. FRANCE 24's Ayesha Ismail reports from the ANC conference.
