ECape ANC backs Zuma, Ramaphosa

2012-12-01 08:53

Alice, Eastern Cape - The ANC in the Eastern Cape on Saturday nominated President Jacob Zuma to lead the party for a second term with businessman Cyril Ramaphosa as his deputy.

Results from the party conference held at the University of Fort Hare from Friday were released in the early hours of Saturday morning.

A report from the party showed that Zuma received 392 votes while his deputy, Kgalema Motlanthe got 211 votes.
For the deputy's seat, Ramaphosa received 379 votes compared to the 199 received by Human Settlements Minister Tokyo Sexwale.

Delegates voted for incumbent chairwoman of the party, Baleka Mbete to retain her position.

Secretary-General of the ANC, Gwede Mantashe was also nominated for the position he currently holds.
He received 385 votes while Sports Minister, Fikile Mbalula trailed behind with 185.

Jessie Duarte was nominated as the party's deputy secretary general and Kwa-Zulu-Natal Premier, Zweli Mkhize was nominated for the post of party treasurer.

"The nomination of these candidates went smooth without interruptions," said the party's Provincial Secretary Oscar Mabuyane.

"These results indicate that the people of the Eastern Cape have spoken... They have democratically nominated the leadership they want to lead the ANC from the Mangaung conference."

Delegates at the conference were still to nominate candidates for the positions of the national executive committee.

      Come one guys be serious. Zuma has been the president for about 3 years, yet you blame him for EC province woes. This is really puzzling especially when one considers the fact that EC has had two previous presidents who were born in the province!!!

    What's going on in EC, yesterday it was Motlante today its Zuma. This province will remain poor especially Mthatha, what is Zuma going to do about that town. - 2012-12-01 09:26

      Yes tabisa - nkandlagate money should have been spent in Mthatha creating jobs and longer term sustainability.... town is falling apart. But I think the ANC sees it as a UDM area so not much to hope for?

      Correction OR Tambo is a region in the EC that unanimously (107) branches as reported elected Motlante and now all regions in the province combined 392 Zuma and 211 Motlante

      Antipoaching - 2012-12-01 10:36

      Kumkani, ja OR Tambo region voted unanimously for Motlante then they got to Fort Hare and were told they were "illegal" No man, this is not right! What crooked stuff has been done to make sure that JZ is President again?? I think theres been promises of cabinet posts and possibly "tenders for tjommies" deals...

  • kevin.broomberg - 2012-12-01 09:13

    The price we pay for getting Cyril Ramaphosa as president is to tolerate Zuma for a while longer.

      wally.williams.148 - 2012-12-01 12:58

      kev47: problem is, I would have wanted Ramaphosa there some yrs ago, but his true identity and colours came through with the Marikana debacle where you will in all probability never hear his name spoken. Research and read about the background and you will understand how the mining industry is controlled, no, NOT by whites, but by Black billionaires (cadres who were enriched and still are!) and deals with overseas companies. I do not believe we need Ramaphosa or Sexwale near the Prez's chair, thank you. SA white are brutalised for these "kings" to flourish and the masses are made tro believe the junk they are fed daily. The ANC and the country deserve proper leadership without baggage or hidden agendae; leaders with integrity and dinamic leadership skills; leaders who do not want to keep the ppl illiterate and under the control of headmen and chiefs to think for them as it suits the leaders. We need and deserve to move forward...not backwards.

      ntebu.mthi - 2012-12-01 10:57

      Zuma is no different from Malema so those who vote Zuma for fear of Motlanthe bringing Malema back into politics are in effect voting for the same issues that they are fearing... which are amongst others, corruption, factionalism, disregard of the rule of law and the constitution, tribalism, inability of delivery of electoral mandates for the masses.

      ntebu.mthi - 2012-12-01 11:06

      Shame Muke Zuma cannot fight any corruption and discipline beacause he has protected certain comrades from corruption charges being heard in courts (eg.the Amisgos) because those comrades support him. He also cannot discipline any comrade because those who have transgressed but support him get scot free. In fact he himself has to answer on his corruption charges in court so what authority would he have to be a voice of reason and read a riot act against corrupt and ill-disciplined comrades? Wake up and eat raw coffee beans asseblief coz Zuma aint a leader who can eliminate corruption and ill-discipline in your lifetime!

  • wayne.jaggers.5 - 2012-12-01 10:12

      wally.williams.148 - 2012-12-01 19:07

      Argh, Wayne, this is such a tired and hollow-ridden little argument, I shld nt even waste my time. U know what, the majority of white ppl do nt want 2 go back 2 apartheid. The DA does nt want 2 do that. This is nt about ousting the ANC. Get ur head out of the sand and stop pretending the country is run as it shld be. In a few years these leaders within the ranks of the ANC and Govt hv seen this country go frm building an economy and relationships 2 breaking everything down and causing more and more hatred. The totality of corruption is long past being a joke, it is frightening. It made me happy 2day 2 hear frm a white man that a Govt Hospital is in a very good condition; that there is discipline; that Rmill's were spent 2 bring it back 2 what it was and keep it there; that the service is excellent and the treatment gr8; the food is @ par with if nt better than that found in a Pvt Hosp. What was needed was a Supt who wanted it 2 work; who wanted 2 work himself; who is dedicated and expects dedication from his staff. It has filtered down 2 other snr staff members. U can go frm 1 unit 2 the next. The stealing and corruption has been curbed, the security and police there 2 assist and doing a very fine job. That is positive. I hv no prob in assisting the ppl of this country, or if they r assisted. But, the corruption and the lack of discipline, the disregard 4 the law, wasteful expenditure - these need 2 b curbed. Farmers are killed almost daily. Where 2?

      Sphamandla to be president that party should win National Elections first. Even loyal ANC voters are disillussioned by their ANC right now. These are not necessarily carrying ANC members but ANC loyal voters for whom ANC is arrogant to acknowledge their grievances on how the party is governed and led. Sorry to burst your bubble but the real test for Zuma is not in Mangaung but with the electorates who have no say in the Mangaung process but a lot of say with their voting power.

  • kobus.hattingh.5 - 2012-12-01 10:42

    One should actually not be saddened by the fact that Zuma will no doubt be elected again as he is the ANC's biggest enemy himself. With him at the helm, the country will sink bigger into the abyss and only when most of his supporters faces even harder times, unemployment and severe hunger, will they eventually realize that this man, and those whom so support him, is only interested in their own pockets. And once the country starts to suffer greatly and they can no longer contain the massive uneployment and violent strikes, they will start looking at voting for others whom can then in time bring in criminal charges against these thieves and confiscate back from what they have stolen from the people of South Africa. So for now, give them enough rope to hang themselves with Zuma leading them to the gallows. And Monthlante is not any different from them as he is cut from the same cloth, an opportunist and in the same 'kraal' as JuJu and the likes :(

  • wenzeslaus.majola - 2012-12-01 10:47

    Some people that profess to be ANC members yet sleep with the enemy are going to learn hard and harsh lessons past Mangaung. Some of these are known to be anti-Zuma from post Polokwane but were deliberately given positions both in the ANC and government for them to show the world their true colours and, indeed, they did exactly that. While they accuse Pres Zuma of corruption and all other ills it is an open secret that they are not very clean themselves. Worse are people in the business world have secret dealings with corrupt politicians to rip the country off and in the same vein cry about a failing economy. The SA community in its entirety is sick to the core and I can assure you that the first phase of any remedy that is needed is true reconciliation where people will learn to appreciate good things that their political rivals and/or enemies do instead of amplifying hateful, negative and condescending statements about one another. Let me assure you that after Mangaung we shall see a much more resolute ANC where dealing with wolves in sheeps' skin is concerned

      ntebu.mthi - 2012-12-01 11:25

      ntebu.mthi - 2012-12-01 11:33

      No Phumudzo! Just like how we hated apartheid, we also hate a corrupt government that robs us of ours and children's future - even if such government is black or not. If we can vote for something we can also vote it out if it is insisting on not implementing the electorate mandate for those who voted them in power. You need to know that Mzansi people will sort their own country out. There will be no few elites that run the country down when the rest of masses starve to death. Mandela promised us that that's what he had fought against and S.A. will never be in such demise ever again, even if such demise is led by JZ or a Verwoed or whatever. So don't delude yourself into thinking that masses are going to let JZ or anyone take us back to apartheid days.

    One important thing that these so called ANC branches and current ANC leadership must remember is the fact that in 2014, we are all going to vote!!!! The fact that ANC paliamentary caucus rejected a debate on vote of no confidence on JZ gives one an impression that Motshekga knows very well that there are many MPs who are not in favour of the man. Afterall,the move was approved by ANC lead polical committee. Chances are; if JZ wins in Mangaung, DA win general elections in 2014 because most people will simply choose not to vote and the extremely angry ones will simply vote for the opposition. ANC has never being this divided and under the stewardship of a person who was portrayed as a peacemaker within the organisation. There is a myth that we forget too soon; we haven't.

      Mcxxxm you alone your intimidation failed with cope now you try DA shame RIP

      honest.mrwebo - 2012-12-01 13:03

      JZ re-election cannot have a more serious impact than the recalling of TM from office , Forget it . When COPE was born I thought that was the end of ANC unity but niks my brother. Secon term is nothing compared to what happened in that era bra.Watch this space unkongolo uzoske abuye ne two thirds thanks to abantu abamhlophe kule forum abasoloko bethukana nabantu abamnyama ngokungabi naskolo as if wonke umntu uzenzile ukuba ngafumani mfundo.

      ANC will rule until Jesus come, You will be strong Joseph Maluleka, please upgrade your medical aid scheme cause STRESS and Heart attacks are coming. Media versus reality

    young black people goes to DA because of this jz...lets get life people.

      nic.nomicos.3 - 2012-12-01 11:13

      Young black people are waking up to the corruption of this curse named ANC...

      Kumkani Soketse - 2012-12-01 11:42

      Men's ideas are the most direct emanations of their material state - Karl Marx. Entre nous (between you n me) @Emmanuel, the DA is neither a solution to the life of the people. At least the ANC is still is an omnibus enjoying more than 60% support of the people n launching pad 4 a working class to advance itself. Ofcourse the struggle ahead of us knows no boundaries on the basis of race n gender as it is the struggle of haves and have not.

      solo.mathe.5 - 2012-12-01 12:14

      When the going gets touch, the weak and disloyal blacks run to the DA. You can go but count us out!

  • mngomantuthuko - 2012-12-01 11:12

    Amandla! People of the EC has spoken the media will try to mislead us driven by the anger that Msholozi will continue to be the president of the anc and the country!!! UZuma lo itsunami akabambeki.

  • Tebogo Thape - 2012-12-01 11:15

    somehow it seems JZ's victory is certain come Mangaung. Its up to us the progressive young people of this country to create a future for us.

  • sam.ntshangase - 2012-12-01 11:27

    Grt results I'm over the mun so early in the morning the key fact is Cyril has outclass Kgalema convincingly Viva Cyril my Pres to be Viva, 4 ppl who are nt sure of this results means the proposal of Prime Min position will take Cyril as incumbent Viva ECape Viva , Viva Cyril Viva

      sam.ntshangase - 2012-12-01 11:53

      @Jamba,amandla Cde nt these hypocrites of Tokyo,Phosa,Mashatile etc JZ can go to Luthuli hse to stabilize anc

  • blessed.gilman1 - 2012-12-01 11:32

    I don't understand why non-ANC members care so much about anc's internal processes.....If you are so desperate to remove JZ from presidency why don't u register and Vote in a national election in 2014.As for Kgalema it will be dumpness of the anc to even make him their president the man is just neither here nor there, you never know where he stands or what he stands for.

  • martin.pearce.3762 - 2012-12-01 11:36

    SAD very SAD. maybe he'll build a holiday home at Port Alfred for R300 million.

  • mawetu.janda - 2012-12-01 11:53

    Poor Eastern Cape leaders( who benefit from Zuma's corrupt ways)may have nominated ZOOMER for the party(cANCer) president for the second time for now but judging by the escalation of his enemies inside and outside cANCer it's crystal clear that he won't finish his first year of his second term as the president of the country.His deputy Cyril Ramaposa will take over and Zuma will get tied up for corruption.

  • Thulile Mtshali - 2012-12-01 12:04

    E Cape has spoken only those ppl dislike JZ talking rubbish

  • Kumkani Soketse - 2012-12-01 12:05

    Anyone who knows anything of history knows that great social changes are impossible without feminine upheaval. Social progress can be measured exactly by the social position of the fair sex, the ugly ones included - Karl Marx. Under Msholozi's watch social progress brought by ANC is what is suppose to be measured and not him. DA and other opposition parties have no alternative to offer to the people other than Zuma this or that. they are like Malema everything in their view is emanating from JZ, assented as if it is the gospel truth.

  • Thulile Mtshali - 2012-12-01 12:09

    JZ deserve 2nd term

      msizi.luthuli.14 - 2012-12-01 17:12

      And you Thulile you deserve a kiss

  • Bob - 2012-12-01 12:15

    What's great about Mangaung is that we can clearly see where the gravy train rolls.

  • honest.mrwebo - 2012-12-01 12:24

    The people of the EC in the ANC have spoken and chose JZ to lead the ANC for the second term , this to me should be respected especially if you are not a member of the African National Congress. Have you thought about what the alternative is ?? Doubt very much !! It`s not the best result but still better than the alternative if you follow me.

  • oliphant.mzolisi - 2012-12-01 12:50

    Why the propaganda eastern cape is not supporting zuma,why ar we being fooled.

  • wally.williams.148 - 2012-12-01 12:51

    Yes, and so the rot will continue...too uninformed and/or spoilt by the thieving that no other response can be expected. I really had seen some glimmer of hope when reading that even Mr Faku, himself not in the clear and rather controversial, indicated that the EC would stand behind Mr Motlanthe. Whart a damn disgrace! Can you be so blind as to not notice what is going on? Can you be so stubborn to the point of self-destruction? Admit the mistake made at Polokwane, get the rot out and get true leadership. A bunch of "I wants..." and "I must haves..." in this province. Sitting around and waiting for damn hand-outs instead of contributing to the economy. Get off your arses and work; better yet, create jobs! Start contributing to the damn fiscus - hope you know what that is - instead of helping to plunder the damn thing. Too scared of discipline and proper administration...that's the problem.

  • leko.dada1 - 2012-12-01 13:00

    Obvious SACP leads, SACP rule yafa kudaaaaaaaaaaaaal' i ANC if zangibiwe ngamasela anxib 'i colours zayo ,now are destroying it . BUT this also good for democracy.

  • notshwala.matshinini - 2012-12-01 13:19

    Im not against Jz but it will be wise if Cyril Ramaphosa become de next president of de country like what Tata did.

  • Muzi Guma - 2012-12-01 13:19

    So many have never met President JZ but they hate him as if nakenabanga naye intombi or wake akuthathela umfazi.

  • mapetsula - 2012-12-01 14:42

    Zuma is good leader that proved by voters. Also in 2014 voters will prove that. In my place gorvement only did toilets coasting R340 in this 18 years.
