Mkhize named in race for president

ANC treasurer general Zweli Mkhize

A “third way” has emerged in the ANC succession battle as the Alfred Nzo region in the Eastern Cape raised the name of treasurer-general Zweli Mkhize as its pick for party president when the party elects a successor to President Jacob Zuma in December.

The region held its elective conference this week and emerged with a decision to lobby branches to support Mkhize when nominations open in September.

The Mkhize slate also includes ANC secretary-general Gwede Mantashe and ANC Gauteng chairman Paul Mashatile.
