Zuma

South Africa's ruling African National Congress (ANC) has selected Cyril Ramaphosa to succeed President Jacob Zuma as the party's leader.

The nation's deputy president defeated former cabinet minister Nkosazana Dlamini-Zuma, Mr Zuma's ex-wife, after a marathon voting process.

Mr Ramaphosa is in a strong position to become president after polls in 2019.

The leadership battle caused fierce political infighting, raising fears the party may split before the polls.

Mr Ramaphosa beat Ms Dlamini-Zuma by 2440 votes to 2261, an ANC spokesperson announced.

This triggered celebrations among party members.

Media reports earlier said the announcement was delayed after Ms Dlamini-Zuma's camp had demanded a recount.
