JOHANNESBURG - The National Working Committee (NWC) of the African National Congress (ANC) held its ordinary sitting on Monday.

A media briefing on the outcomes of the NWC is being addressed by the ANC Secretary General, Ace Magashule.

Magashule announced Sisi Ntombela (ANCWL Deputy President) as premier-elect of Free State and Refilwe Mtshweni as premier-elect of Mpumalanga.

Magashule also said NWC has set up task team to prepare for workshop that will discuss land expropriation without compensation.

The women will take over from Magashule in the Free State and David Mabuza in Mpumalanga.

Magashule said: “Comrade Sisis Ntombela will be the premier-elect until confirmed by the legislature of the Free State and comrade Refilwe Mtshweni will be premier-elect of Mpumalanga. The NWC believes the two women will take forward the agenda of radical economic transformation.”

Mabuza, meanwhile, is now the leader of government business.
