Zuma says stop it!

THE ANC's national executive committee will develop a code of conduct for lobbying - ahead of its electoral conference in 2012, President Jacob Zuma said yesterday in Midrand.

THE ANC's national executive committee will develop a code of conduct for lobbying - ahead of its electoral conference in 2012, President Jacob Zuma said yesterday in Midrand.

Zuma criticised attempts to open the 2012 succession debate as "ill conceived and premature".

"We cannot deviate and divert our minds from delivery and think about who will be what in 2012, that's opportunistic," Zuma told delegates at Cosatu's 10th national congress.

"The promotion of a succession debate so prematurely is a mischievous diversion that must be avoided at all costs." - Sapa
