ANC to announce Limpopo leadership

2011-12-18 09:00
Johannesburg - The ANC in Limpopo is expected to announce its top five provincial leaders on Sunday morning.

Voting for the top five leadership positions started late on Saturday.

Provincial chairperson and premier Cassel Mathale is battling it out at the conference against Deputy Arts and Culture Minister Joe Phaahla to retain his position.

Early indications are that Mathale had the most number of supporters at the conference.

Mathale backers apparently include the provincial ANC Youth League, the ANC Woman’s League and the Peter Mokaba and Vhembe regions.

The Sekhuhune and Mopani regions want Phaahla to take over from Mathale - whose chances of retaining his position might have been threatened by the recent placing of some provincial departments under administration by President Jacob Zuma.

Mathale supporters were confident that he would come out victorious, saying proceedings on Saturday were just a formality.

Phaahla supporters also felt their leader would come out victorious.
