ANC spokesperson Pule Mabe

The ANC spokesperson explains some of the reasoning behind the NEC's appointed list of leaders in Parliament.

The African National Congress’ national executive committee (NEC) has concluded the appointment of its leaders in Parliament.

The selection of a new National Assembly Speaker, National Council of Provinces (NCOP) chairperson and party chief whip was made at a special NEC meeting on Monday.

The appointments are as follows

THE ANC WHIPPERY

Chief whip: Pemmy Majodina

Deputy chief whip: Doris Dlakude

Chief whip of NCOP: Seiso Mohai

PRESIDING OFFICERS: NATIONAL ASSEMBLY

Speaker: Thandi Modise

Deputy Speaker: Lechesa Tsenoli

Chair of Chairs: Nomvula Mokonyane

PRESIDING OFFICERS: NCOP

Chairperson: Amos Masondo

Deputy chair: Sylvia Lucas

Questions have been asked about the appointment of controversial former minister, Nomvula Mokonyane, who will not be heading back to cabinet.

Earlier this year, former Bosasa COO Angelo Agrizzi implicated Mokonyane in the state capture inquiry.

ANC national spokesperson Pule Mabe says Mokonyane has not been charged and that she is qualified for the job.

From where we are sitting, she is not charged. She is a seasoned cadre of the African National Congress with incredible experience.

She has come out herself and said if there was a need for her to respond to whatever issues, she is always available. Now comrade Nomvula, one of the things you will find encouraging with her is that she is not a person who is scared to stand up and speak. She is always willing to give her version.

Pule Mabe, Spokesperson - ANC

I can tell you, when the ANC made this decision it had considered all the facts at play. We are a responsible organisation, all the decisions we make are also embedded in helping us construct institutions that are responsive to the desires of our people.

Pule Mabe, Spokesperson - ANC

He explains the reasoning behind Amos Masondo's appointment.

The ANC believes in the notion of an inter-generational mix. Comrade Masondo, will be one individual that plays a greater role toward making sure that those of our new MPs that are being deployed in the NCOP are made to understand the discipline that comes with that kind of position.
