South Africa: ANC renews confidence in Ramaphosa

1 Min Read

On the sidelines of the 55th National Elections Conference, taking place from 16 to 20 December in Johannesburg, the electoral commission of South Africa’s ruling African National Congress (ANC) revealed today the list of its top elected leaders.

President Cyril Ramaphosa was re-elected for a second term as ANC leader, against the former Health Minister Zweli Mkhize, who was also in the running for the ANC presidency.

Their task is also to appoint the 80 additional members who will make up the National Executive Committee, the party’s highest decision-making body between conferences.

Ramaphosa is being challenged by some party members after the publication of a report by an independent parliamentary committee revealing that he may have committed serious violations of the law and the Constitution through his unexplained possession of a large sum of foreign currency hidden in one of his private properties.
