ANC delegates in high spirits ahead of election results announcement

JOHANNESBURG, December 18 – African National Congress (ANC) delegates rose up in song praising their preferred leaders ahead of  the ANC’s leadership results announcement on Monday.
The supporters of the two presidential candidates, Deputy President Cyril Ramaphosa and Nkosazana Dlamini-Zuma, chanted around plenary in Nasrec Johannesburg.
Markers were then whipped out with “CR17” and “NDZ” and hoisted high as the chanting continued.
Dlamini-Zuma supporters sang their favourite “Phakama Nkosazana, ixesha lisondele..” loosely translated, they call on Dlamini-Zuma to rise as her time to lead has come.
The Ramaphosa supporters sang “on your marks, get set..we are ready for Ramaphosa” as the two groups tried to outdo each other.
Some NEC members joined in song, dancing and waving from upfront plenary.
