Panyaza Lesufi and Lebogang Maile have both accepted nominations for the position of chairperson at the Gauteng ANC provincial conference.

Voting was under way by midday, following the nomination process for the province's top political positions.JOHANNESBURG - Saturday will see the much-anticipated clash between Gauteng education MEC Panyaza Lesufi and Cooperative governance and traditional affairs MEC Lebogang Maile play out.POLITICS The second day of the much-anticipated Gauteng ANC provincial conference was upset by delays and uncertainty following an urgent court interdict application in the Johannesburg High Court.Saturday 25 June 2022 - 10:58pm #eNCA Courtesy #DStv403.

Those nominated along with the two were from each of the preferred slates – Maile's "Adiwele" and Lesufi's"Renewal" slate.Others nominated include Nomantu Nkomo-Ralehoko and Mzi Khumalo for the position of deputy chairperson.Theirs is now a race too tight to call, with their respective delegations almost matching in size.For the provincial secretary position, three people were nominated: former provincial secretary Jacob Khawe, Ekurhuleni regional secretary Thembinkosi TK Nciza, and Thulani Kunene.Thereafter you will be billed R75 per month.Delegates nominated Nomathemba Mokgethi for deputy provincial secretary, while Tasneem Motara accepted her nomination, which was raised from the floor.Maile’s supporters dubbed “Adiwele,” after a popular Amapiano song by local artists Young Stunna and Kabza Da Small, which speaks of economic prosperity, spent some time deliberating over those it wished to see joining Maile and music producer Thembinkosi “TK” Nciza as Gauteng’s top 5.Former Gauteng health MEC Bandile Masuku declined his nomination for provincial treasurer.

Instead, Morakane Mosupye accepted his nomination for the position from the conference floor.While those aligned to the unity, renewal and service slate, led by Lesufi have a collective, they have been presenting to party members for most of their campaign.Too close to call Lesufi and Maile had previously contested the deputy chairperson position in 2018, which saw Lesufi emerging victorious.The atmosphere at the conference indicates the numbers are too close to call this time around.Claims that fresh talks had renewed at the sidelines of the conference, were dismissed by most regional leaders and the contenders themselves, with many laying the blame on Johannesburg’s regional chairperson Dada Morero, who is said to be backing the return of outgoing provincial secretary Jacob Khawe to that office.Ahead of the gathering, clear support from Maile was predicted from Tshwane, where most branches indicated their support for the Gauteng Cogta MEC.His support was also expected in Ekurhuleni, but Lesufi enjoys some regional support there as well.While to some it's irrelevant who emerges as ANC chairperson, as they will not be able to arrest the party’s decline but instead the question is about who will make better negotiators come election time.

In the Johannesburg region, the support was said to be split.A similar picture was predicted for the West Rand.Those in support of Lesufi claim Maile lacks the ability to inspire enough confidence to change the ANC’s fate at the polls, saying Lesufi is a more trusted leader, who should see the organisation towards the 2024 general polls.Sedibeng, where Lesufi launched his campaign, is believed to back him.Prolonged debate, court case Nominations began early on Sunday morning, following a 10-hour debate about credentials..Credentials adopted included just over 1 000 delegates qualified to participate at the conference.

The prolonged debate was caused by continued disputes about the participation of five branches from Ekurhuleni.These are the same branches whose votes were quarantined at the ANC Ekurhuleni regional conference a few weeks ago.The debate was fierce, with delegates raising objections about guests present, including ANC national executive committee (NEC) members, at the conference.The participation of the ANC Youth League also came into question as hours passed with no hope of a resolution.The conference was also marred by a court case launched by an ANC member from Ekurhuleni who ultimately failed to convince the Gauteng High Court in Johannesburg to halt the conference.
