South Africa: Ruling ANC launches campaign for 2019 election

South Africa‘s ruling African National Congress (ANC) party has launched its election campaign ahead of polls in May amid falling support, internal divisions and a sluggish economy.

The ANC, which has ruled the country since the end of apartheid 25 years ago, suffered a sharp decline in popularity under the scandal-ridden presidency of Jacob Zuma, who was removed last February after nine years at the helm.

Al Jazeera’s Fahmida Miller has more from the city of Durban.
