ANC dumps populists

ANC Dumps 'Populists' in Local Poll Clean-Out -
In a move likely to aggravate internal tensions, the African National Congress (ANC) said yesterday it would ditch "populists who made empty promises" in favour of skilled professionals in its candidate lists for the March 1 local elections.
It seems like a rather sensible move to me. It reminds me, though, that I need to keep up with internal SA politics more so that I can better understand the context of this move.
