Pressure appears to be mounting for the North West Premier Supra Mahumapelo to step down. An inter-ministerial committee is planned to be in the province on Fridays to deal with struggling hospitals and schools.
Reports say President Cyril Ramphosa met with the premier to tell him of the ANC national committee's decision for him to either resign or be recalled.
Speaking to Ray White on The Midday Report, University Of North West political scientist Professor Andre Duvenage says he is expecting the same pattern as the one that happened to Jacob Zuma to play out.
He will resist until the bitter end. And I am expecting this decision to go to the national executive committee and before a final decision, we will most probably also see the inter-ministerial report. I think there are a difficult two weeks ahead for the ANC and Mr Mahumapelo, and I will be surprised if the decision is earlier.— Prof Andre Duvenage, Political Scientist at University Of North West
