Stan Mathabatha re -elected as ANC Limpopo Chairperson



The long-awaited 9th ANC provincial conference in Limpopo took place over the weekend at the University of Limpopo.

Premier Stan Mathabatha has been re-elected unopposed as the chairperson of the party in the province with Florence Radzilani elected as his deputy.

Soviet Lekgayane is the new provincial secretary while Danny Msiza has been re-elected as the party’s provincial treasurer. Basikopo Makamu is the party’s deputy provincial secretary.

Mathabatha’s re-election came as a disgruntled group approached the High Court in Johannesburg to interdict the Limpopo ANC Elective Conference from going ahead.
According to the spokesperson for the ANC in Limpopo, Phuti Lekganyane, the top five were elected after intense lobbying and canvassing by delegates at the conference.
Sources revealed the conference was marred by factions which were discouraged by speakers, including NEC member Nathi
He said it was democratic for people to canvass, emphasising that all must be done to strengthen the ANC. Mthethwa warned against the danger of party members being “arrested to the mode”, which was seen at the conference where people had opposed ideas when it came to who must lead.

He encouraged them to accept the outcome of the conference and support new leadership even if their preferred candidates did not make it.
He said if people failed to support the new leadership this would only lead to the continuation of factionalism. “Factions are vicious and if you belong to a faction you don’t have a life of your own. In other words you have outsourced your thinking,” he said
Meanwhile, the African National Congress (ANC) president Cyril Ramaphosa has congratulated the newly elected leadership. Ramaphosa commended
delegates for being disciplined despite legal battles hanging over procedures of the conference.
He says the significance of the conference in the ANC cannot be over-emphasised as it comes at a critical point in the life of the party.
Ramaphosa took a moment to call the party to unity.
“We need a mixed leadership; a leadership that has different perspectives different approaches voices to be brought together to enrich the processes of the ANC, so that we can move forward with real unity and renewal.”
Ramaphosa has called on the Alliance partners to work hard in ensuring that the Alliance is united.
