Pretoria - Deputy President Kgalema Motlanthe on Friday said he was “agonising” about whether to run against his boss, President Jacob Zuma, for leadership of the ANC.

“I am still agonising over it,” he said just hours after Gauteng backed him to replace Zuma as party president.

The ANC holds a leadership conference in just under three weeks and provinces are in the process of declaring whom they want for top party posts.

Motlanthe said the answer could only come once the ANC's regions had spoken.

“The question will be answered once it's posed by the right body,” he said when pressed to give an indication of whether he will run if he garners enough party support.

“I may not even be nominated for all you know,” he told foreign correspondents. - Sapa-AFP
