Is There A "Campaign To Smear Him" Or Has He Smeared Himself? - Henekom Reacts To Mkhize's Ambition.

Derek Hanekom, a veteran of the African National Congress and ardent supporter of President Cyril Ramaphosa, has rejected Zweli Mkhize's formal offer.

The previous wellbeing priest recently got a shot in the arm after some Zulu customary pioneers bolstered him to run as an official candidate and oppose president Cyril Ramaphosa this week.

Mkhize acknowledged the excellent motion and disclosed that he intended to undertake the mission and challenge Cyril Ramaphosa for the ANC's highest position.

This however angered a few of President Cyril Ramaphosa's benefactors who had not anticipated Zweli Mkhize's December challenge.

Zweli Mkhize has always been marketed as a Ramaphosa supporter, until the Digital Vibes defilement scandal surfaced, at which point the CR group began limiting any relationship with Mkhize, despite having sung his praises in the past.

The ANC heavyweight in the Kwa-Zulu Natal region, with his acceptance as the health minister last year, was suddenly viewed as a RET force and a Zuma benefactor.

Derek Hanekom, an ANC veteran, responded to the endorsement of Zweli Mkhize to oppose Cyril Ramaphosa at the December election by stating that the movement was focusing on restoration and that individuals like Mkhize who are facing criminal charges cannot emerge as leaders.

Hanekom stated that there is no purpose to promote Zweli Mkhize, but hinted that the former health minister had promoted himself.

"Is he being distributed by a mission or has he spread himself? The December Conference must be a meeting of reestablishment - the beginning of a new section. We cannot leave this meeting with pioneers facing criminal charges "said Derek Hanekom.

Thabo Mbeki, a former president of South Africa, recently stated that the African National Congress (ANC) made a mistake by failing to clearly state that individuals facing criminal charges are not permitted to be appointed to any position. Mkhize also appears to have strengths in a number of areas.

This position is aimed to eliminate any remaining prospective competitors against Cyril Ramaphosa.
