Andile Lungisa, a former vice president of the African National Congress Youth League (ANCYL) who is now a member of the mayoral committee (MMC) for the department of infrastructure and engineering in the Nelson Mandela Bay Metropolitan Municipality, was once again off base with his forecast.
It was projected by Lungisa in May of this year that Oscar Mabuyane would lose the position of Provincial Chairperson of the Eastern Cape to Babalo Madikizela, but Mabuyane easily won the election.
This time, Lungisa made a ridiculous prediction that Panyaza Lesufi, the actual victor, would lose to Lebogang Maile by a margin of 42 votes during the Gauteng Elective Conference. However, Lesufi prevailed over his rivals by a margin of 32 votes to become the next chairperson of the ANC in Gauteng.
As for the position of Provincial Secretary, Lungisa correctly anticipated that Thembinkosi TK Nciza would be elected.
When asked by a Twitter user who he plans to vote for in the next KwaZulu-Natal (KZN) ANC electoral, Lungisa stated he will back the current chairperson, Sihle Zikalala.
