South Africa: Former health minister catches the opportunity and seeks ANC presidency

1 Min Read

In a string of interviews campaigning for his party, former health minister Zweli Mkhizen and member of the African National Congress’s NEC, from which all the country’s presidents have emerged since 1994, could be the main rival to President Cyril Ramaphosa, who is facing impeachment proceedings over a burglary scandal.

Mkhizen said his party will meet next week to decide who will lead the country if the party wins the 2024 general election, having received a nomination from some party members.

Defending his party, Zwlie Mkhize said it had a good impact in fighting corruption, good governance, promoting professional leadership, and proposing to hit a balance in ensuring energy security, which is needed to boost economic growth and industrialisation.
