Rustenburg - Former North West ANC secretary Supra Mahumapelo made a dramatic comeback to the provincial leadership on Saturday when he was elected chairperson.

With 409 votes, he beat Moloki Pheelwane with 313.

The North-West ANC elective conference in Rustenburg saw former Mayor of Matlosana, China Dodovu being elected as deputy chair with 520 votes.

The province's former youth commission chair Kabelo Matebogo was elected secretary.

Madibeng's axed municipal manager Philemon Mapulane was voted in as provincial treasurer.

The newly elected provincial ANC leadership would assume power from the provincial task team that had been running the party's affairs after its 2009 administration was disbanded due to infighting.

    '"Hundred percent black Jesus," read another car, declaring Supra Mahumapelo as the preferred candidate for the provincial secretary position.' So that black jesus comment on the car was about resurrecting his political career I suppose? So the next step will be to crucify him as well I believe. Well he was a failure who failed the people so this should be a good thing for the DA to get some more votes from disgruntled voters and maybe even the ones who are diappointed about losing their bid for power and stolen wealth.

    Was Mr Mapulane not dismissed for financial irregularities of more than R100million? Now he is treasurer? If I remember correctly, he was arrested by the Hawks? But wait! He is a member of the ANCYL! I forgot! That obviously means that he is above the law!
