Who is unity? - Mokonyane wants Mpumalanga's 'unity' candidate explained
ANC Secretary General Gwede Mantashe on Monday said the party now has the task of converting the unity vote into an actual candidate
JOHANNESBURG - African National Congress (ANC) national executive committee member Nomvula Mokonyane says those who voted for unity in Mpumalanga should explain why they didn’t nominate an actual candidate but says the fact that it was allowed, proves the ANC’s internal democratic processes.
Mokonyane spoke to Eyewitness News on the sidelines of the Water Infrastructure Investment Summit in Sandton on Tuesday.
Former Treasurer General and presidential hopeful Matthews Phosa has challenged the PGC's outcome which endorsed Nkosazana Dlamini Zuma as the provinces preferred nominee to lead the party after its conference later this month.
ANC Secretary General Gwede Mantashe on Monday said the party now has the task of converting the unity vote into an actual candidate.
Mokonyane said: “It’s a member who’s in good standing in the ANC who gets nominated. It’s Nomvula Mokonyane, it’s Joe Phiri, it’s Tlhalefang Modise, those are the people who are nominated and any other nomination, anyone who has done it has to explain.”
She, however, says this is all part of a healthy ANC democracy.
