Purges and placements

The pro-Kgalema Motlanthe African National Congress leaders have been purged from the National Executive Committee. That includes Tokyo Sexwale, Mathews Phosa, Fikile Mbalula and leaders from provinces or factions that backed him: Limpopo, North-West, Western Cape, Gauteng and Northern Cape. Provinces opposing President Jacob Zuma will not be represented in the ANC’s highest echelons, creating resentment and opposition to the new party President. Purges in government may come next.
