Shake-up in ANC national executive

The African National Congress’s (ANC) new, 80-member national executive committee (NEC) was announced at the end of the party’s 52nd national conference in Polokwane at midnight on Thursday evening.

Topping the list with 2 845 votes (out of 3 605 votes cast) was Winnie Madikizela-Mandela, with Jeff Radebe (2 716) and Zola Skweyiya (2 700) a close second and third.

High up in the voting results were Pallo Jordan, Jeremy Cronin, Jessie Duarte, Lindiwe Sisulu, Sankie Mthembi-Mahanyele and Brigitte Mabandla.

The NEC joins the top six leaders, who were already elected earlier in the week, under the direction of new party leader Jacob Zuma.

Also making it on to the newly enlarged NEC were Tokyo Sexwale, Blade Nzimande, Makhenkesi Stofile and the ANC Youth League’s Fikile Mbalula.

Ace Magashule, Valli Moosa, Collins Chabane and Derek Hanekom also made the cut, as did the Yengenis, Tony and Lumka. Manto Tshabalala-Msimang was also elected with 1 591 votes, one vote more than Trevor Manuel.

Cyril Ramaphosa is also on the NEC, as are Nozizwe Madlala-Routledge, Bheki Cele, Angie Motshekga and Nosiviwe Mapisa-Nqakula.

On the downside, those who did not garner enough votes to make the NEC included several ANC heavyweights such as Ronnie Kasrils, Alec Erwin, Geraldine Fraser-Moleketi, Aziz Pahad, Dipuo Peters, Smuts Ngonyama, Mosiuoa Lekota, Essop Pahad, Lindiwe Hendricks, Phumzile Mlambo-Ncguka, Frene Ginwala and Nosimo Balindlela.

Ebrahim Rasool, Popo Molefe, Saki Macozoma, Charles Nqakula and Sello Moloto also had nothing to show at the end of the evening; neither did Ivy Matsepe-Casaburri and Ngconde Balfour.

The conference finally ended with prayer and the singing of the national anthem.
