Doctor Xhakaza has been named as the party’s convener in Ekurhuleni by the national working committee of the African National Congress( ANC ).
This came after the high court declared the chaotic regional conference from the previous year to be illegal, disregarding its conclusions.
Due to the conference’s quarantine of 19 votes, which could have tipped the balance in his favor, Xhakaza lost to Mzwandile Masina for the position of regional chair.
