Suspended ANC bigwig Declares he will be Replacing Cyril Ramaphosa.

The ANC's much-anticipated national conference in December is the catalyst for the organization's increased political debate. In the past, the incumbent president didn't have to do much to gain re-election, but President Cyril Ramaphosa may face a considerably more difficult task this time. 

According to sources, there were a swarm of candidates fighting for Ramaphosa's post. 

Dr. Zwelini Mkhize, Lindiwe Sisulu, and Ace Magashule are expected to be included to the list. All of these figures are philosophically opposed to the president and cannot stand another five years of his presidency. 

A fresh name, though, has been thrown into the mix. South Africa's vice president, David Mabuza, has remained aloof from the summit's ongoing debate. 

Following Mabuza's recent setback in the Mpumalanga provincial election, the CR22 brigade has been accused of plotting to depose him. The appointment of Mandla Ndlovu as chairperson has been widely viewed as a setback to his popularity in the province. 

Mabuza's close ally and former Ehlanzeni regional chair, Ngrayi Ngwenya, has dropped a bombshell, claiming that Mabuza will be promoted to the highest position in Luthuli House come December, rain or shine. 

"DD Mabuza will be the country's president, regardless of public opinion. The ANC is firing me in order to prevent Mabuza from becoming president." The Nkomazi chapters will nominate Mabuza for president. During an address at a Block B Inkomazi community gathering, Ngwenya mentioned this. 

Because of his role in a brawl that broke out during a Nkomazi branch meeting, during which several members were beaten into submission, Ngwenya's membership in the ANC was momentarily suspended. He argues his suspension is to prevent him from supporting Mabuza's candidacy in the next 55th national elective conference. 

"You should be aware that the ANC is attempting to depose me in order to prevent Mabuza from running for president. The Nkomazi chapters would nominate Mabuza for president "He continued, saying 

Mabuza has lost significant support from both the C22 group and the RET brigade, which he ironically abandoned during the 2017 Nasrec conference, according to Ngwenya's remark, making Ngwenya's forecast implausible. 

He's known as "The Cat," and his opponents would be foolish to dismiss him just yet, given his track record of political astuteness.
