Not again-David Mabuza is challenging Ramaphosa

Following proclamations by David Mabuza that he is fit to run briefly term as the representative leader of the African National Congress (ANC), the party's head of races says those with desire for force should require it to be postponed.

While crusading in the Tshwane metro seven days prior, Mabuza freely expressed he was fit and prepared to run briefly term. 


He was chosen at the party's 54th public meeting at Nasrec in Gauteng in 2017. 

The ANC will go to its 55th elective gathering in 2022. 


ANC head of races Fikile Mbalula said Mabuza had been called to arrange for his comments, alongside any other individual who had an aspiration for power. 

"We have called him to request, and every individual who is engaged with those conversations. We are not there. We will have an entire year to examine administration, and we are not there. Every individual who examines that with you, they are taking us out of control," Mbalula said. 

"We are engaged, thus any individual who has a wild craving for force and who chooses to essentially talk about authority issues [is] totally out of control," he said. 

Mbalula said the party was centered around the metropolitan decisions, and any discussion or conversations around who should lead the party ought not to make any difference fourteen days before the races. 

"It is off-base for anyone fourteen days [before] the decisions to raise a nonbanter. An ideological group however large as the ANC seems to be not idiotic enough to talk about things that don't make any difference. The issue of who turns into the president is a non-banter at this moment," Mbalula told columnists. 

The ANC's 2017 elective meeting saw Cyril Ramaphosa chose as a pioneer.
