Bloemfontein - The ANC's national conference in Mangaung was “very successful”, President Jacob Zuma said on Thursday.

“We conclude our business on a high note, satisfied that we have achieved the objectives we have set for ourselves at the beginning of the conference,” Zuma said in his closing address in Mangaung in the Free State.

He congratulated the newly elected leadership of the African National Congress.

“As incoming leadership we are humbled by the confidence showed by the branches of the ANC in us.

“We will do our best in our task on behalf of the membership and guided by the membership,” Zuma said.

He thanked the outgoing leaders.

“(They) contributed immensely to the growth and success of the movement in the last five years, at times in difficult conditions.” - Sapa
