Bloemfontein - Expelled former Economic Freedom Fighters MP Khanyisile Litchfield-Tshabalala has been elected as the United Democratic Movement’s new deputy president.

She beat party chief whip Nqabayomzi Kwankwa to the post at the UDM's elective congress in Bloemfontein over the weekend.

Litchfield-Tshabalala was expelled from the EFF with Mpho Ramakatsa and Andile Mngxitama in April for various reasons, including speaking to the media after being suspended. She was an African National Congress member before she joined the EFF.

In June, she joined the UDM as the party's national organiser. Party leader Bantu Holomisa was re-elected president.
