Expelled ANC Cdes Pushing Mabuza To Challenge Cyril For Presidency?


Deputy president David Mabuza's backers who are calling for him to contest for a second term are said to be those who have long been expelled or suspended from the ANC.

One of the most vocal comrade who is also a close ally to David Mabuza, Ngrayi Ngwenya was suspended from the ANC last year after he led a group of comrades to Zuma's Nkandla homestead to show support ahead of his jail sentence.

It is now believed that those who are either suspended or expelled from the ANC are pushing for David Mabuza to contest for ANC Presidency in December.

Mpumalanga province which used to be Mabuza's stronghold has since been taken over by those who pledge their allegiance to president Cyril Ramaphosa.

It seems David Mabuza was slowly alienated in his home province, and those who want him to stand up to the task are either suspended or expelled.

Critics argue that deputy president David Mabuza’s campaigners for his next term in the presidency are ANC rebels who for months have been suspected of forming a new political party.

With David Mabuza entering the race to become ANC’s number one in the December elective conference, the cat joins other heavyweights eyeing the top position.

Cyril Ramaphosa, Zweli Mkhize and Lindiwe Sisulu, have received support from branches in various regions to contest for the position.

David Mabuza says he is ready to stand for a second term, despite earlier speculation that he might quit politics because of ill health.

Just like all other contestants whose names have been thrown into the ring, David Mabuza argues that he has been nominated by ANC branches, and in that spirit he will avail himself for the task.

ANC's December conference will be tightly contested as more and more comrades are joining the presidential race to occupy the highest office.

Mabuza's backer, Ngrayi Ngwenya argued that he will become president whether his opponents like it or not.
