Mokaba region wants Motlanthe - report

2012-05-28 12:21
Johannesburg - The ANC'S Peter Mokaba region in Limpopo has pronounced its support for Deputy President Kgalema Motlanthe, according to a report on Monday.

According to The Citizen newspaper, Limpopo joined Mpumalanga and KwaZulu-Natal in defying a ruling party order not to enter the succession debate ahead of the ANC's elective conference in December.

The Capricorn district municipality's executive mayor, Lawrence Mapoulo, told the newspaper: "We'll support a leadership that will give the thumbs up to economic freedom in our lifetime... and redistribution of land without compensation.

"By the looks of things, Kgalema is the only ANC bigwig who understands that concept. It is only Motlanthe who can take us to the promised land of Mangaung and beyond."

He was speaking after the Peter Mokaba region's elective conference held in Polokwane at the weekend.

Mapoulo is an ally of Limpopo Premier Cassel Mathale, The Citizen reported.
