The ANC's 54th National Elective Conference has resolved to downgrade the South African embassy in Israel to a liaison office, in solidarity with the Palestinian people.

Joining us in studio to discuss the issue further, is Kwara Kekana from the human rights and Palestine solidarity organisation, BDS.
