Cyril's 'Incoming Replacement' has been declared by a suspended ANC official.

Cyril's 'Incoming Replacement' has been declared by a suspended ANC official.

With the ANC's political discussion heating up in recent weeks, the much anticipated national conference in December is tied directly to that. President Cyril Ramaphosa may have a much tougher test to pass if he wants to preserve his job than other presidents have had to face to gain re-election.

Many candidates have expressed interest in succeeding Ramaphosa as president of South Africa, and the rivalry is strong.

Ace Magashule, who was suspended as secretary-general before being reinstated, and Dr. Zwelini Mkhize are expected to put their names in the hat. Ideologically, these people are at odds with President Trump, and they can't wait for him to leave office in the spring.

However, a different moniker has been floated as an alternative. According to Deputy President David Mabuza, who has showed no interest in the ongoing summit talks, this is his position.

Reports of Mabuza's removal from the CR22 brigade have circulated since the recent Mpumalanga provincial election, when his group was effectively wiped out. After the recent election, this is the latest news. Because of this, some in the province believe that Mandla Ndlovu's support has dwindled significantly since he was named chairperson of the organization.

An important bombshell, however, has been dropped by close Mabuza ally and former chair of the Ehlanzeni regional chair Ngrayi Ngwenya. Ngwenya has stated that Mabuza will ascend to Luthuli house's highest office in December. Regardless matter the weather, Ngwenya said this.

"If the people of South Africa don't want DD Mabuza to be their president, he'll be the one. You should know that my existence in the ANC is regarded damaging to Mabuza's presidential campaign, and as a result, I am being expelled." Nkomazi chapters will nominate Mabuza for the position of president. Ngwenya made this statement while speaking to a crowd gathered in Block B Inkomazi for a community event.

Ngwenya's involvement in a fight that erupted at the Nkomazi branch meeting and ended in several members being brutally beaten has led to the African National Congress temporarily rescinding his membership. In addition, he believes he was suspended in order to prevent him from supporting Mabuza's presidential campaign at the 55th national electoral conference..

"To make things more difficult for Mabuza, the ANC has decided to oust me from the organization. Mabuza will be nominated as president by Nkomazi branches "he explained, stating the obvious.

A counterargument might be made that Ngwenya's announcement is improbable given Mabuza's recent loss of CR22 and RET brigade allegiances, which he ironically abandoned during the 2017 Nasrec conference. By pointing out that Mabuza has lost the backing of both of these parties, one could make this argument.

Rivals would be doing themselves a disservice if they ruled Mabuza out of the running just yet because he has proven himself to be politically astute over the past few years.

To what extent do you agree or disagree with Ngwenya's assertions?
