JOHANNESBURG – Deputy president Cyril Ramaphosa is expected to address the SACP congress.
It’s day three of its 14th national congress, which is being held in Ekurhuleni.
The SACP will announce its new leaders on Wednesday night.
Blade Nzimande is likely to remain on as general secretary while his deputy, Jeremy Cronin, is unavailable for re-election.
On Tuesday, state capture was high on the agenda.
Delivering his scathing political report on Tuesday, Nzimande called for government to stop doing business with the politically connected Gupta family, accused of having influence on the president and his government.
Nzimande, once a staunch Zuma supporter leading up to his election as ANC president at the 2007 conference in Polokwane, told delegates he felt betrayed by the Zuma leadership, which he said did not live up to its promises post Polokwane.
Nzimande said state capture by the Gupta family aided by the corrupt in government was on ”steroids” and that drastic action was needed as the ANC faced losing the 2019 general elections.
