One of Mbeki’s lead disciples, Defence Minister Mosiuoa Lekota, is said to have shoved the list of Mbeki’s preferred board members down ANC MPs’ throats. Notable names that were rejected by most of the caucus were Mbeki’s former spokesperson Bheki Khumalo and former board chairperson Christine Qunta — understandably so. publishes all comments posted on articles provided that they adhere to our Comments Policy.
