Nokuzola Sisisi Tolashe

Sisisi Tolashe elected new ANCWL president. The Eastern Cape’s Nokuzola Sisisi Tolashe has been elected the ANC Women’s League (ANCWL) president at its 13th national conference.

She beat KwaZulu-Natal’s Thembeka Mchunu, and former league president Bathabile Dlamini.

Tolashe received 1729 votes, compared to Mchunu’s 1038 and Dlamini’s 170 votes.

President Cyril Ramaphosa ally Sisisi Tolashe was elected as the new president of the ANC Women’s League, thrashing her opponents.

After several delays the announcement was made on Sunday evening with Ramaphosa expected to deliver the closing address.

For the deputy president position, the league elected Lungi Gcabashe with 1 661 followed by Bernice Swart with 1190 and Sylvia Lucas who received a measly 62 votes.

Nokuthula Nqaba was elected secretary general with 1611 votes and beat Lydia Moroane-Zitha and Weziwe Tikane-Gxothiwe who received 1081 and 229 votes respectively.

Controversial ANC leader Dina Pule made her comeback to national politics in Tolashe’s slate taking the position of deputy secretary with 1 713 votes while Makoma Makhurupetje received 1 035 and Dlamini ally Winnie Ngwenya’s 181 votes.

The league’s finances will now be overseen by the new treasurer general Maqueen Letsoha-Mathae who received 2 608 against Thlape Manketsi’s 281 votes.

Dlamini’s woes first came when she received the least branch nominations of the three candidates nominated for the position of league president.

Dlamini received 258 branch nominations while Tolashe 1 604 followed by late comer Thembeka Mchunu who was nominated by 796 branches.

This could mean the end of an era for a once powerful clique in the ANC formerly known as the radical economic transformation grouping.
