BLOEMFONTEIN - South African President Jacob Zuma, fresh from a landslide re-election as head of the ruling ANC, on Thursday promised to crack down on corruption and feuding that has shaken confidence in the party's leadership of Africa's top economy.

In a speech to close a week-long ANC elective conference, Zuma called on the 100-year-old African National Congress to "root out" faction-fighting and the use of money to buy members or influence within the party.

"The primary task of the ANC going forward is to work for unity," said Zuma, whose re-election this week ended months of feverish speculation over a challenge from Deputy President Kgalema Motlanthe.

"It is clear that the ANC is renewing itself already," a smiling Zuma told the packed audience.
