This, according to him, is not a good sign for the current Vice-president as he will be given a run for his money.

“When she came to the podium… you could see the tempo. She took some time to raise the game to the level that she did. I think that towards the end rather you saw a very well-composed candidate.

The UGBS lecturer also explained that her choice of words and costuming on the night helps her efforts to bring variety and some diversity into the race. He further added that some expansion to the demography covered by the party.
