While there were singing and moving for the duration of the day by thousands of campaigners of the African National Congress [ANC] presidential candidates, party officials took to online networking uncovering who they voted in favour of.

Astonishing quiet from spectators, kicked in when a voice resounded inside the Nasrec Conference lobby, outside Soweto early evening on Monday to announce the new ANC President.
