”His resignation is hereby duly acknowledged and accepted. The ANC would like to thank him for the service.

”The ANC wishes him good luck in his new endeavour,” he said.

Cope denies Mlambo-Ngcuka’s nomination
Meanwhile, Cope on Tuesday denied media reports that former deputy president Phumzile Mlambo-Ngcuka has accepted a nomination for Parliament.

Spokesperson Sipho Ngwema said Mlambo-Ngcuka was definitely not on their list and reports stating that she was were incorrect.

The Star on Tuesday reported that Mlambo-Ngcuka had accepted a nomination by Cope for Parliament.

In the report, the party’s elections chief Mlungisi Hlongwane confirmed Mlambo-Ngcuka’s acceptance.

”Phumzile is on our list,” he said.

He added that Mlambo-Ngcuka was ”fairly placed” but could not disclose her number on the list. — Sapa
