Nono Maloyi Is The New ANC North West Chairperson

Nono Maloyi has been elected the new Chairperson of the North West African National Congress.

The results of Maloyi’s victory were announced at 4 am on Monday by the IEC at the Rustenburg Civic Centre (where the party’s ninth provincial conference is being held). Elections were finally completed on Monday after three postponements and a court interdict.

The conference (the ninth provincial one) had kicked off on Friday but was struck by a court interdict. The interdict hindered the interim provincial committee from participating in the voting process.

On Monday morning, nominations and elections of additional members will commence. Other conference programs were postponed to the end of this month.

EWN reported a “clean sweep by the N12 cabal at the Rustenburg Civic Centre on Monday morning after the results were announced of the province’s top five leadership.” Maloyi, a former MEC, emerged the winner with a total of 370 votes. He defeated the current premier, Bushy Maape, by 76 votes.

EWN reported that this marks the first elected leadership in the North West since 2018, “when the then-PEC was disbanded and former premier, Supra Mahumapelo, stepped down”. News24 reports that the new leadership of the ANC in North West faces an uncertain future. The report further states that “its newly elected chairperson could be forced out due to a culpable homicide charge still hanging over his head.”
