In the next two weeks, the ANC will clarify whether David Mabuza will continue in his role as the country's deputy president, despite losing out to Paul Mashatile as party deputy president last month.
This was confirmed by newly elected ANC secretary-general Fikile Mbalula on Thursday morning.
Mbalula was addressing the media at the Imvelo Safari Lodge, about 5km from Bloemfontein, where the ANC is wrapping up its hybrid 55th national elective conference, which the party failed to conclude in December.
"What I can tell you right now is that we are seized with these matters [deliberating on whether to reshuffle Cabinet or not following some ministers not making it onto the new national executive committee]. In the next two weeks, not five years, we will be able to give you an answer."
