#ANC Eastern Cape is a showdown between Madikizela and Mabuyane. #ANC Eastern Cape has become a heated fight between two women, the incumbent ANC Provincial Chairperson, Ntombi Qaqawu and the MEC for Social Development, Nomvula Mabuyane, and MEC for Health, Nomakhe Mabuyane. The ANC Provincial Chairperson’s daughter, Ntombi Qaqawu, has been at the centre
In a week, there will be a showdown between Madikizela and Mabuyane. But which one will win? Both of them have been the most vocal and active ANC members in the province. The ANC provincial chairperson, Mabel Nkosi-Maqoma even claimed that Madikizela was the only ANC member who could win the election.
On the one side we have Mabuyane, a veteran of the ANC and its battles in exile. He has fought against apartheid and won, and with the ANC in power he is now a Minister in the new government. On the other side we have Madikizela, an ANC activist who has been in exile in South Africa. He is a veteran too, fighting against apartheid and winning.
ANC Eastern Cape has become the venue for the two main candidates to face off in the ANC’s 2020 election. Former president Jacob Zuma’s faction of the party has chosen former MEC for KwaZulu-Natal, Mosebenzi Zwelakhe Madikizela, a close ally of Zuma, as their candidate to face off against the ANC’s deputy secretary general, David Mabuyane.
What are the issues in the ANC that are causing the split and what the consequences of the split will be?
