ANC names Premiers

The African National Congress (ANC) has announced the Premiers-elect for the Mpumalanga and the Free State province.
The Premiers-elect are Refilwe Mtshweni for Mpumalanga and Sisi Ntombela for the Free State, respectively.
“The National Working Committee (NWC) believes that the two women nominated as Premiers-elect will take forward the agenda of radical socio-economic transformation.
“The nomination of the Premiers-elect demonstrates that the ANC is a true non-sexist organisation and continues to recognise the existing leadership capacity of the women within our organisation,” the ANC said in a statement on Wednesday.
Mtshweni was appointed acting Premier earlier this month by the Mpumalanga executive council and she is also a former MEC for Cooperative Governance and Traditional Affairs, while Ntombela is the ANC Women’s League Deputy President.
