South Africa's Deputy President Kgalema Motlanthe speaks to foreign journalists at the Union Buildings in Pretoria, South Africa, on Friday, Nov. 30, 2012. Motlanthe says he is "agonizing" over whether he would accept leading the governing African National Congress if he's chosen during the party's convention next month over President Jacob Zuma. Some local ANC groups have nominated Motlanthe to take over leadership of the ANC. Typically, whoever leads the ANC becomes the party's presidential candidate. Elections are slated for 2014.
