Zuma re-elected as head of African National Congress

JACOB Zuma (pictured) has been re-elected as leader of the African National Congress but his comfortable victory has done little to conceal bitter divisions in South Africa's ruling party.

Mr Zuma saw off the challenge of his national deputy, Kgalema Motlanthe, taking 75pc of delegates' votes at the party conference. The win effectively confirms him as president for another term after 2014, thanks to the ANC's stranglehold on national politics, but will not dampen accusations of corruption and ineffectual leadership.

The vote also confirmed the return of Cyril Ramaphosa to frontline politics as the party's deputy leader. (© Independent News Service)
