The New NEC announced

The African National Congress wrapped its five-day 54th National Conference held at NASREC outside Soweto in the early hours of Thursday by announcing the 80 members of the national executive committee (NEC). Mpumalanga province has a representation of 11 members in the NEC, and after an absence of 5 years, has a representative in the officials, after David Mabuza was elected as the deputy president.

The only other time that the province had any representation in the NEC’s officials was during in 2007 when Mathews Phosa was elected as the treasurer-general of the organisation.

The biggest entrant into the NEC from Mpumalanga was undoubtedly Ronald Lamola, the former deputy president of the African National Congress Youth League. Lamola was the spokesperson of Mpumalanga premier, David Mabuza, but was removed after the league defied Mabuza and voted for Julius Malema’s re-election as the organisation’s president in 2011.

Lamola was subsequently outside from the league when leaders of the ANC affirmed an unknown Collen Maine to the position of president, but that did not deter Lamola from his outspokenness. At one point he staged a protest with a fellow comrade calling for Zuma’s removal as the country’s president.

The entry that would likely cause controversy is that of disgraced Mduduzi Manana, a serial offender who has two previous convictions for theft was recently convicted of assaulting two young women in a bar.

The full list is as follows:

President: Cyril Ramaphosa

Deputy President: David Mabuza

Secretary-General: Ace Magashule

Deputy Secretary-General: Jessie Duarte

Treasurer-General: Paul Mashatile

National Chairperson: Gwede Mantashe
