The ANC in Limpopo have announced candidates for the positions of Mayors in Sekhukhune District Municipality, Vhembe District, Makhado and Collins Chabane Municipalities. This follows a PEC meeting held on Monday, 6 November in Polokwane.
The party has been faced with a long outstanding matter of the Mayorships of Vhembe and Makhado since the last local government elections of 2021. Shadrack Maluleke has also been interim Mayor at Collins Chabane Municipality since the passing of Moses Maluleke.
There has also been a dispute over the appointment of Sekhukhune District mayor Maleke Mokganyetji which led to the ANC Limpopo PEC instructing the region to properly elect a Mayor. The PEC has now announced candidates for the positions of Mayors in the affected municipalities.

“The PEC further noted that these deployments of Mayors will also affect other positions within the political management teams of some municipalities. We urge our regions to attend to such vacancies occasioned by the redeployments,” said the ANC.
“The ANC PEC calls on all these new deployees to neither spare their energy, capacity and resolve to attend to the service delivery challenges facing our people with a great sense of urgency.
“The PEC also expresses gratitude to all employees who accepted and acted in the various roles while awaiting the finalization of ANC processes.”
CONDOLENCES TO PARTY MEMBERS
Meanwhile, the party also announced the death of three of its members in an accident while on their way from the 2019 Manifesto Review in Malebitsa, Sekhukhune Region on Sunday. Seven passengers were injured, and three lost their lives in a head-on collision. The members were traveling in a taxi carrying ANC members returning to their respective homes.
“The African National Congress Limpopo PEC extends its wishes for a speedy recovery to all those who were injured. Offers condolences to the bereaved families of the three persons who lost their lives as a result of the accident. We implore the South African Police Services to expedite the investigation to determine the cause of the accident.”
