Gijimani awaits Parly deployment

He was removed as mayor and replaced, the ANC said he was now heading for Parliament.


Ex-JS Moroka municipality mayor Gijimani Skhosana is still waiting for his deployment.

He remains unemployed after his seat as the mayor of the municipality in Siyabuswa was given to Thulare Madileng last month.

Many viewed Skhosana’s removal as a purge after he wanted to contest Speedy Mashilo for the position of ANC Nkangala chairman four months ago.

Skhosana disappointed many of his supporters when he pulled out of the race in the last minute, giving way to Mashilo to be elected unopposed.

ANC Nkangala spokesman Sello Matshoga said Skhosana will definitely be sworn-in as a member of the National Assembly.

“This will happen before the year ends,” Matshoga said.

“We were busy with the process of replenishing the list. The list is now replenished and comrade Gijimani is now number one on the province to National Assembly list,” he said.
