Police Minister Fikile Mbalula has cemented his allegiance with the Zuma camp ahead of the ANC's national conference, with a series of tweets declaring his support for presidential hopeful Nkosazana Dlamini-Zuma.

Mbalula said that Dlamini-Zuma would be the sure winner when delegates vote at the conference, and further implying that the only way Deputy President Cyril Ramaphosa would be elected president is through "fraud and anarchy".

Mbalula also mocked Ramaphosa's 'New Deal' action plan for an economic turnaround.
