Panyaza Lesufi seizes power in Gauteng. Look how he defeated them! Maile
Panyaza Lesufi is now the new chairperson of the ANC in Gauteng.
He fought fiercely against Lebogang Maile, but ultimately prevailed.
Lebogang Maile lost to Lesufi by a margin of 32 votes.
Maile and Lesufi are rumored to be enthusiastic supporters of President Cyril Ramaphosa's re-election campaign. According to rumors, Maile will be supporting Mashatile at the party's December elective assembly. Reports indicate that Lesufi has a crush on Lamola for the same position.
Conferences in the provinces of Eastern Cape, Mpumalanga, Limpopo, and Northern Cape have all signaled their support for Ramaphosa's re-election.
Maile has told Business Day of his support for Mashatile.
Lesufi, though, has not commented on whether or not he supports Lamola.
Credentials, or a list of all the delegates attending the conference and all the voting delegates, were a source of contention that caused the Gauteng provincial congress to be postponed for several hours. According to the schedule, the report was supposed to be adopted on Saturday, but it was actually approved shortly after 6 a.m. on Sunday.
