ANC votes for the NEC

2012-12-19 14:35

ANC delegates have begun voting for the 80 member National Executive Committee at the University of the Free State. Watch.WATCH

Mangaung - The Zuma camp made a clean sweep of the National Executive Committee positions in the ANC, while prominent leaders aligned opposed to Zuma's re-election did not make the cut.

Among those excluded were Fikile Mbalula, Tokyo Sexwale, Mathews Phosa and Paul Mashatile.

Nkosazana Dlamini-Zuma was named top of the list followed by Malusi Gigaba and Lindiwe Sisulu.

The list is dominated by KwaZulu-Natal leaders and members of cabinet, including  securocrats in the cabinet, Nathi Mthetwhwa and Siyabonga Cwele.

Fired national police commissioner Bheki Cele also made it onto the NEC.

The announcement of Cele and former Gauteng housing MEC Humphrey Mmemezi's names were greeted with cheers from delegates on the last day of the African National Congress's national elective conference.

Winnie Madikizela-Mandela was second last on the list.

The new NEC also included several Cabinet ministers and AU commission chair Nkosazana Dlamini-Zuma, as well as ANC spokesperson Jackson Mthembu, Sapa reported.

Delegates sang as the new members joined the party's top six on stage.

"Siwelewele Zumantashe...!!" they sang in a soccer celebration, stomping their feet, and waving party flags.

With two fingers in the air, indicating their support for Jacob Zuma's second term as ANC leader, they blew whistles and danced.

Mmemezi, who was fired for misusing a state-issued credit card, was one of the new members who got the loudest cheers from the delegates.

So did former ANCYL treasurer Pule Mabe, Zuma's media adviser Zizi Kodwa, and Cele.

Cabinet ministers on the list are Public Enterprises Minister Malusi Gigaba, Public Service Minister Lindiwe Sisulu, Minister in the Presidency Collins Chabane, Justice Minister Jeff Radebe, Home Affairs Minister Naledi Pandor, Science and Technology Minister Derek Hanekom, Finance Minister Pravin Gordon, Police Minister Nathi Mthethwa and National Assembly Speaker Max Sisulu.

Former Reserve Bank governor Tito Mboweni, and former arts and culture minister Pallo Jordan were also elected.

Trade unionists who made it to the NEC were Congress of SA Trade Unions president Sidumo Dlamini, and Nehawu general secretary Fikile Majola.
