Police Minister Fikile Mbalula says the African National Congress (ANC) needs to unite and confront issues as one.

Mbalula, refrained from giving his views on the decision to postpone the State of the Nation Address saying it was a political decision.

“It is the ANC that must take decisions. Based on the challenges it faces and based on how it views the country and where we want to go to.”

“So I am looking forward to the meeting. I am very happy to be part of the National Executive Committee (NEC), to be part of the people who will be discussing this, and I have no doubt that we will overcome, our movement will emerge victorious.”

Meanwhile ANC Secretary General Ace Magashule says the engagements between President Jacob Zuma and ANC president Cyril Ramaphosa have brought direction in so far as what should happen regarding the transition.

Magashule said Ramaphosa is handling the matter and will report back to the ANC NEC when it meets next weekend.

Both the State of the Nation Address and the special NEC was postponed to allow for further engagements.
