Tokyo preparing his team
Tokyo Sexwale must have enjoyed the underdog wins in the rugby world cup over the weekend, as he silently prepares his team for his presidential run. He had another small shot in the arm over the weekend with the appointment of one of his point men, Paul Mashatile, as provincial chairman of the ANC at the party conference in Midrand.

It's not going to mean instant wins for Tokyo, but it does give him a friend in a very high place, given the nominations process of the ANC president, which comes through the provincial structures of the party.
