The ruling African National Congress (ANC) party in South Africa has concluded its six-day policy conference.
But the meeting was overshadowed by a bitter leadership struggle within the ANC.
Current president and chair of the ANC, Jacob Zuma, is set to step down in December, when a new leader will be chosen.
Potential candidates include current Deputy President Cyril Ramaphosa and former African Union Chair and Zuma's ex-wife, Nkosazana-Dlamini Zuma.
As the fierce succession battle continues amidst economic and political turmoil, ordinary South Africans wonder what the party can do for them.
