Mzwandile Masina has won the chairmanship of ANC Ekurhuleni Region

This comes as the ANC Dispute Resolution Committee has quarantined or set aside at least 19 votes from six disputed branches until their status is resolved. Masina received 163 votes at the regional conference, compared to 151 for his opponent, Doctor Xhakza. All five top official jobs were gained by his slate. Thembinkosi Nciza, the re-elected Provincial Secretary, received the most votes, receiving 170 against 124 for his opponent, Nokuthula Xaba, the regional leader of the ANC Women's League. Ncedisa Mthenjwa of the Election Agency announced the preliminary results.

Meanwhile, the ANC has admitted that it will not be able to meet the National Development Plan's (NDP) targets by 2030. Mmamoloko Kubayi, the party's director of economic reform, told the media on Sunday that economic obstacles, natural disasters, COVID-19, the war in Ukraine, and the July riots had rendered the NDP's goals impossible. The African National Congress (ANC) has released its latest draught Economic Policy Document.

The yet-to-be-discussed policy document proposes changes to specific economic policy areas. "Over the last decade, the transfer of manufacturing to Asia has resulted in trade wars, which appear to be changing the course of globalisation substantially over the next 10 years." Growth in China, South Africa's sole trading partner, has slowed, posing an unknown risk to export prices.

The conflict in Ukraine has unsettled global markets and could lead to economic disintegration between countries. In the near term, the conflict has increased food costs, fuel prices, wheat prices, and fertiliser prices, and it is in this context that the ANC must devise an economic strategy that has rattled global markets and may result in economic decupling between countries. In the short term, the conflict has resulted in higher food, fuel, wheat, and fertiliser prices, and the ANC must devise an economic policy in this setting.
