Mpumalanga ANC chooses Zuma

2012-10-08 17:07

Johannesburg - The ANC in Mpumalanga has chosen President Jacob Zuma to head the party for another term, provincial secretary Lucky Ndinisa said on Monday.

The provincial executive committee (PEC) resolved to nominate leadership "in touch with the people, accessible, and flexible", he said in a statement.

The province has put forward the names of businessman Cyril Ramaphosa for deputy president and Jessie Duarte as deputy secretary general.

It favoured keeping Baleka Mbete as chairperson and Gwede Mantashe as secretary general.

Ndinisa said the province supported KwaZulu-Natal Premier Zweli Mkhize as treasurer general.

As part of the PEC's task of providing guidance to the African National Congress branches in the province it had chosen leaders who satisfied the character of the party, understood ANC policy, and could apply it under all conditions, Ndinisa said.

The leadership it had chosen were "beyond reproach in political and social conduct" and "principled, firm, humble, and considerate".

Branches in Mpumalanga would now debate the list and decide who to nominate.

Following this process, the province would hold a nomination conference to decide on a final submission to the ANC's National Electoral Commission, Ndinisa said.

Nominations for candidates for the ANC's top leadership positions opened at the beginning of the month. The national elections will take place in Mangaung in December at the ANC's national conference.

Mpumalanga will send 467 delegates out of the total of 4 103 delegates attending the conference.

      There is no hope for you. We all know about Zuma's past, remember Shabir Shake, etc. What has he really done for the masses fo this country? How do you sleep at night knowing that you support someone who has no shame to squander R238 million Rand on a homestead for his wives while around the corner there are millions of people living in squalor, schools without books, run down hospitals, etc., etc. You are probably some tenderpreneur.

    Not suprised at all. Typical people who are anti-change. Destruction in the making, clearly not expecting us to vote for looting. They know if they vote for change end of gravy train. Glad in a way because that is the end of two third majority. From this MISFORTUNE, change will come anywhere.

  • nosiphom.mazibuko - 2012-10-08 17:37

    The probelm with the ANC is that they are just like Cosatu - have no understanding of Democracy. The person who stands against Zuma and does not win will be castigated like TM, and treated like a pest, instead of being treated like someone who tried his luck and lost. Hence Zuma will be returning for his second term and normal succession will take place after 5 years - and he knows it.

  • larry.piggott1 - 2012-10-08 17:38

    "in touch with the people, accessible, and flexible" I totally agree. “touching all tax payers’ money with his grubby fingers. Accessing the treasury as he likes. And extremely flexible when he does the Awuleth' Umshini Wami The leadership it had chosen were "beyond reproach in political and social conduct" and "principled, firm, humble, and considerate". HUH ???

  • - 2012-10-08 18:01

    I think we are better off with a person who can't resist skirts than one advocating the violent seizure of mines and widespread lawlessness like we see today. The point we are missing also is that ANCYL favourite FM doesn't seem to be doing too well in the nominations for the SG post.

      Malose-Nyatlo - 2012-10-08 18:24

      The second in command at the ANC is virtually an unknown individual - what goes in his mind at leat. With JZ you could be sure he will marry again, promise disgruntled workers a living wage, fire one or two ministers identified by the public protector, and so on. \r\nWhat do we know about the other guy? Nix!\r\nNever has our fate depended in the hands of the man we don't want.

    Beyond belief. I suppose that is what you would expect from an intellectually and morally bankrupt organization. Another 5 years of corruption and devastation by Jacob 783.

    Better the devil you know I say! Else we get Kgalema with Winnie, Malema, Fikile and Tokyo. If we follow Mpumalanga's route, we get Ramaphosa the next time around and with that I will be very happy!

  • innocent.hapazari - 2012-10-08 18:19

    This is what it takes once one chooses to be a 'slave of sin'. Obviously Ndinisa, and those singing the same song with him are such 'slaves'. Honestly, to describe, any of the leaders on the said list as 'beyond reproach' would take a moron or someone who is desperate for protection, from the law of course,by those individuals. Ndinisa is certainly not a moron, he can only be singing for his past sins to be forgiven, or worse for future tenders - the 'tenderprenuer sin' is haunting these guyz.

  • Rafels1 - 2012-10-08 18:24

    The leadership it had chosen were "beyond reproach in political and social conduct" and "principled, firm, humble, and considerate". The air pollution in Mpumalanga is clearly taking its toll on humans... I mean REALLY!

  • Ndumiso Shongwe - 2012-10-08 18:29

    the PEC of mpumalanga is stupid, never been so disappointed..the idiot called zuma has done nothing for the country and the statement he made about democracy not caring for the minority should have woken them up as seeing that the mpumalanga province is a minority, this vote is all about tenders for the mpumalanga government..stupid idiots

  • joe.smit.549 - 2012-10-08 18:31

    Motlante must smile more just like JZ and stop the long face everytime we as the public see him or he must tell all he sees in the ANC with over 1million members geez the tender party.

  • Johnson - 2012-10-08 18:49

    Common sense, the one attribute lacking in the so-called leadership of a country like its airline loosing its momentum due to the populist believe that ruling a country is rather getting something in return than showing strength to lead us to the dream nation everybody had on their lips not so long ago. One failure after another, one more newspaper reporting on corruption, where ever they are deployed in the name of affirmative action. Killings day by day like we saw in Libya and recently in Syria, Africans employ the one the simplest rule they know best - even if you are an employee not participating in their strike action or to simply remove a political opponent. The country has become a leader in the world of statistic's, not for our ability to govern or educate, but for our ability to kill and destroy, to the extend that even foreigners come here if they want somebody removed. After all you don't have to look hard to find a killer, here we do it over a pay dispute.

  • sihlangu.hokweni - 2012-10-08 18:55

    Like I commented earlier about Buffulo City doing the same (choosing his highness of Inkandla).I REPEAT IT HERE! I LIKE IT!I LIKE IT when they FUMBLE LIKE THIS so that they can go to 2014 with this TRADITIONAL CHANTER sothat opposition parties can make MINCEMEAT of him

  • ganon.nhubunga - 2012-10-09 06:44

    Let's see, the line up is being condemned because of President Zuma. There is no way South Africans can vote people who aligned to people who bankrupted Limpopo Province. ANC voters are not stupid, uyou should know that by now. The current ANCYL promotes corruption hence theit prefared candidates are will be snubbed by right thinking South Africans. You can call us stupid but I do not think the majority can be that stupid. Call us names, we do not care, at least the current Government managed to flush out most corrupt people. I still need to hear people condemn the white capitalists who own this country's economy and invest the money in Europe. Please, leadership, when you come back from Mangaung, let's solve this racists, capitalists. coconuts and apply all the previous resolutions and current ones. Let us join hands and disappoint the prophets of doom in the form of tenderpreuners. Let's sideline all the corrupt officials. Not everyone working for government is ANC. We support the Mpumalanga list. Buying an R18m bull/cow/calf has got nothing to do with corruption. The government is doing so much for the poor but corrupt individuals who can demolish a R3 million house and build another for R16m are taking us backwards. What I agree with the white racists in this blog is corruption, my problem with you racists is that you are selective in your analysis. White owned big Coporates are also a problem, they are milking this country dry. Thumbs down, 3,2,1, go.... to hell!!!

      commentator.kommentaar - 2012-10-09 08:01

      Ganon, Just because I hold the opinion that Zuma is a corrupt leader does not make me a racist. I thought Mandela was a brilliant leader and you guessed it - He is in fact BLACK. I did not like the style of Mbeki, because I got the impression that he did not understand africa and the average problem of an african - poverty. Zuma understands this problem, but he chooses to lift himself out of poverty by corrupt means. What does that leave the man in the street to do if the message we get from our leaders are that the only way to go forward is corruption. Yes, I agree that the ANCYL is worse when it comes to corruption, but I would prefer a government that was really "beyond reproach".
