  Zizi Kodwa is the ANC’s new national spokesperson, the governing party said on Monday.

  He replaces Jackson Mthembu, who became a part of the ANC’s caucus in   Parliament following the general elections, deputy secretary general Jessie   Duarte said in a statement.

  “Comrade Zizi   Kodwa brings with him valuable experience as a communicator who rose in the   ranks of the ANC from the ANCYL [ANC Youth League], where he was an NEC member   and spokesperson.”

  Duarte said Kodwa later   joined President Jacob Zuma’s administration as a communications advisor.

  He was also elected to   the ANC’s national executive committee following the ruling party’s elective   conference in Mangaung in December 2012.

  “The ANC is   confident that his acquired knowledge and application of communication skills   will assist the ANC in its engagement with its stakeholders who are the   public, the media, and civil society,” she said. – Sapa
