There is no official word as to whether or not North West Premier Supra Mahumapelo will heed President Cyril Ramaphosa's call to resign from office.
Eyewitness News (EWN) reporter Qaanitah Hunter says numerous senior leaders of the ANC have confirmed Ramaphosa's engagement with the premier, asking him to step down or face the prospects of being removed.
A high-level ministerial task team led by Minister in the Presidency Nkosazana Dlamini Zuma has been assigned to deal with the crisis in the North West province.
The team will hold a series of meetings across different departments, to assess the extent and nature of the alleged corruption and maladministration.
Hunter has more on the story.
There is confirmation from numerous senior leaders from the ANC that yesterday, the President had made a call to the premier asking him to resign from office and if he resists they will be left with no choice but to remove him through a motion of no confidence.— Qaanitah Hunter, EWN reporter
That happens parallel to a meeting that is happening this afternoon in Mahikeng where an inter-ministerial task team is busy mulling over corruption allegations and a diagnostic report of the gigantic problems that the North West faces and in that meeting is Supra Mahumapelo who is showing some rebellion.— Qaanitah Hunter, EWN reporter
