ANC stalwarts are calling for voters to support the ruling party at the 2019 general elections, despite all the uproar over their candidates list.
Cheryl Carolus, former deputy secretary-general, is adamant that no other political party has what it takes:
"We still believe no other party in this country has the solutions, the vision or the values, or commitment to carry through those values,"
Carolus says that the soul of the party was up in the air at the moment with conflicted feelings over the candidate list.
President of the veteran's league, Snuki Zikalala, echo's her sentiments, urging candidates to carefully consider nominations:

Veteran Mavuso Msimang had been perturbed by a few of the names mentioned, according to News24, and felt that the ANC 2017 conference had clearly indicated the kind of leaders the party desired.
Popo Molefe said that it was not so much about being found guilty, but about questionable reputations:
