NEC packed with Zuma's allies

The composition of the party's highest decision-making body between conferences was expected to be an indicator of the balance of power in the party's leadership.

JOHANNESBURG - Several senior African National Congress (ANC) members who've courted controversy while serving in President Jacob Zuma's Cabinet have made it on to their party's newly elected National Executive Committee (NEC).

The composition of the party's highest decision-making body between conferences was expected to be an indicator of the balance of power in the party's leadership.

Cyril Ramaphosa finds himself leading an NEC packed with the president's allies.

Tina Joemat-Pettersson who's been re-elected, served in different portfolios before she was shuffled out of President Zuma's Cabinet, with Parliament approving a R2 million bonus for her.

Former Public Protector Thuli Madonsela recommended she be disciplined for reckless handling of state money when she investigated a controversial fisheries tender several years ago.

Joemat-Pettersson challenged Madonsela's report in court, but lost.

Former Deputy Higher Education Minister Mduduzi Manana has also made it on to the NEC.

He recently pleaded guilty to assaulting three women.

Public Service and Administration Minister Faith Muthambi has also seen her fair share of scandal.

She's come under fire from opposition politicians for allegedly misleading Parliament during an inquiry into the SABC.

Muthambi was also implicated in the Gupta leaks for allegedly sharing confidential Cabinet documents with the influential Gupta family.
