South African President Cyril Ramaphosa has actually been re-elected leader of the governing African National Congress (ANC) at a celebration management contest, an ANC authorities stated on Monday.
Ramaphosa had actually been commonly tipped to protect re-election for a 2nd five-year term as ANC leader at the five-day event being kept in the nation’s greatest city Johannesburg.
He protected the most elections from rank-and-file ANC members and is commonly considered as the nation’s most popular political leader.
But his re-election project was dogged by the “Farmgate” scandal that broke in June including large amounts of foreign currency discovered concealed at his personal video game farm.
Ramaphosa has actually rejected misdeed and has actually not been charged with any criminal offenses over the scandal, however it has actually raised concerns about how he got the cash and whether he stated it.
