'Zuma will go if Dlamini-Zuma is made interim president'

President Uhuru Kenyatta and Deputy President William Ruto

The failure by the ANC NEC and ANC president Cyril Ramaphosa to recall Jacob Zuma on Wednesday only proves that the ANC is incapable of change‚ the Democratic Alliance says. "They are paying tribute to the father of our young democracy", he said.

Mandela said the leaders expressed a desire to go to his grandfather's grave but would have to wait for the family to perform traditional rituals ahead of the visit, that include slaughtering an ox to use the blood for cleansing the visitors.

For the ceremony to take place, elders from the Mandela family will have to deliver the request to visit his grave from ANC leaders.

But on Thursday the top leaders of the ANC could not visit Madiba's grave which is yet to be opened to the public since he was buried on his farm in Qunu along the N2 between Mthatha and East London in 2013.

The Mandela family has since agreed for the ANC to return on 11 February for the visit to take place.

Ramaphosa, who was accompanied by some members of the ANC's National Executive Committee, arrived to loud cheers of a small crowd and proceeded to visit four homes in Ward 06 of the area.

"In the top 6 some were linked to this and that faction and some didn't speak to each other".

He said branches of the party brought together different views, thought processes and orientations. Firstly, because ANC leaders do not want to humiliate him, and secondly, because he still has allies in the NEC that Ramaphosa supporters will not want to alienate.

The party resolved at its national conference in December in Johannesburg that it would initiate amendments to the Constitution to achieve land expropriation without compensation‚ but gave no timeline. "We are going to go back to our roots to reconnect with our people", said Ramaphosa.
