Motlanthe set to quit politics - report

Johannesburg - Deputy president Kgalema Motlanthe has reportedly not put his name forward for the ANC's list of candidates in this year's elections, and does not intend to serve in the new government after the elections.

Beeld reported on Tuesday that this will pave the way for ANC deputy president Cyril Ramaphosa to become the country's deputy president.

Ramaphosa was recently appointed as special envoy to President Jacob Zuma to mediate in the South Sudan conflict, as well as assist with reconciliation and nation building in Sri Lanka.

ANC sources told Beeld this move was intended to introduce Ramaphosa to the international community ahead of his appointment as deputy president.

Mboweni to make a return to politics?

Meanwhile, rumours are circulating that former labour minister and former Reserve Bank governor Tito Mboweni could make a comeback to politics after he resigned from his position of chairperson of AngloGold Ashanti on Monday. However, Mboweni told Business Day that he resigned because he wants to take care of his expanding portfolio of investments and responsibilities.

Beeld also reported that ANC veteran Ben Turok will also not be returning to Parliament after the elections, for both health reasons and because he wants to spend more time on the publication he edits, New Agenda.
