Voting for the new leader of South Africa’s ruling ANC ended on Monday about ten hours after delegates began casting ballots for either Deputy President Cyril Ramaphosa or Nkosazana Dlamini-Zuma.

“Voting for top 6 is done,” said the source, referring to the position of president of the African National Congress and the party’s five other senior posts.
