BALEKA MBETE

CityPress - - News -

Mbete, as cur­rent chair­per­son of the ANC, is another fe­male can­di­date who has been men­tioned in the de­bate about a fe­male pres­i­dent.

She was among the first women to say she would avail her­self if nom­i­nated by branches. How­ever, her name does not fea­ture in a pro-fe­male pres­i­dent list that is do­ing the rounds.

Ear­lier this year, Mbete was seen to be in cam­paign mode when she told del­e­gates at a pro­vin­cial meet­ing of the ANC in Lim­popo that some party MPs were plot­ting to oust Zuma. This was seen as an at­tempt to in­gra­ti­ate her­self with the pres­i­dent.
