This comes after the surprise resignation of ANC provincial executive committee and provincial working committee member Thulare Madileng who is said to headed for the JS Mokora municipality mayoral job.
The ANC in the Mpumalanga province is not going to comment on rumors doing the rounds in ANC circles that they plan to remove JS Moroka mayor Gijimani Skhosana.
Provincial spokeswoman Sasekani Manzini said a statement will be released concerning Madileng’s next deployment.
“The ANC deploys and redeploys,” she said on Friday mid-day.
“We will release a statement on where comrade Madileng will be deployed now. [As] For rumors that the JS Moroka mayor will be removed, I can’t comment as we haven’t released any statement concerning that,” Manzini said.
The resignation of Madileng from the Mpumalanga legislature this week saw SACP provincial leader Bonakele Majuba being sworn in as the new MPL.
Sources say Madileng has resigned in order for him to come serve as the mayor of the JS Moroka municipality.
“That’s what I can tell you,” a source privy to ANC provincial executive committee decisions said on Friday.
“He will be the mayor, trust me,” he said.
“He will be sworn in as a councillor, then afterwards as a mayor,” the source said.
Manzini declined to comment, saying journalists should concentrate on a statement the ANC released on Friday in which they were congratulating Majuba’s deployment in the legislature.
“Other than that statement there’s nothing. We’ll issue another statement on comrade Madileng’s deployment, for now we congratulate comrade Majuba on his deployment to the legislature,” Manzini said.
