Minister Nkosazana Dlamini-Zuma says that she is ready to serve the government in any capacity should the ANC retain power, including being deputy-president.

The Minister in the Presidency lost the chance to lead the ruling party at the 2017 national conference but has not allowed that to dampen her vision for progress:

“Who becomes deputy is the president’s prerogative. I’ve always said that if I am asked to sweep the floor, I will sweep it very clean. So whatever I am asked to, I will do.”

Dlamini-Zuma cast her special vote in KwaZulu-Natal yesterday and was one of the first high-ranking ANC officials to do so.

Speaking to eNCA, the leader encouraged the youth to vote in order to shape their future in South Africa:

“Young people are for today but also they are for the future. So they better shape the future that they want to inherit today."

One of the best ways to do this was to take the responsibility to vote, said Dlamini-Zuma, who felt it was a sign of a good citizen.
