According to IOL, after a meeting with Limpopo African National Congress (ANC) leadership, Mpumalanga Premier David Mabuza concluded a meeting with Gauteng leaders in his quest to ensure “unity” ahead of the governing party’s much anticipated elective conference in December. The meeting was called “long overdue.”
“We have collectively agreed to take critical steps in the next four months to work very hard to foster unity and cohesion not only within the ANC, but within the broader society. Furthermore, we will develop a joint programme of action between now and December 2017, to have meaningful engagements with all ANC structure
Mabuza was once a staunch supporter of President Jacob Zuma and part of the so-called “Premier League”, a faction led by Mpumalanga, Free State and North West premiers which relentlessly defended and supported Zuma.
