Dlamini Zuma backer Nomvula Mokonyane denies calling for top six vote recount
Nomvula Mokonyane is denying claims that she, amongst other things, requested a recount that delayed the announcement of results from the election of top six officials.
JOHANNESBURG - Former African National Congress (ANC) national executive committee (NEC) member Nomvula Mokonyane is denying claims that she, amongst other things, requested a recount that delayed the announcement of results from the election of top six officials.
Messages circulating on social media on Monday as the ANC and the rest of the country waited to hear who would lead the ANC claimed that Mokonyane, a staunch supporter of Nkosazana Dlamini Zuma's presidential campaign, asked that ballots be counted again after she allegedly learned that the vote hadn't gone Dlamini Zuma's way.
In a statement released earlier on Tuesday morning, Mokonyane says that the claim is false.
She's also denied allegations that she tried to include fake delegates at the ANC's national conference.
Mokonyane has further dismissed as fake a message that she accused David Mabuza of "selling out" after he was elected as Cyril Ramaphosa's deputy last night.
