The Regional Executive Committee (REC) of the African National Congress (ANC) in Ekurhuleni held its ordinary REC meeting on Wednesday. The meeting was inspired by theme of the 13th Provincial Conference of the ANC in Gauteng: Unity, Integrity, Service and Renewal.
The REC meeting follows after the committee saw a need to conduct a comprehensive and objective post-election diagnosis and the need for the ANC in Ekurhuleni to heed the call for Unity, Integrity, Service and Renewal.
2019 National and Provincial General Elections
The REC acknowledged the fact that it is the collective unity of ANC members and supporters throughout the country that carried the ANC through the recent election process. Volunteers and cadres (Cde) of the ANC across the region and the country at large worked collectively to deliver a victory for the ANC in the recently held elections.
The REC in Ekurhuleni wishes to firstly congratulate President Cyril Ramaphosa for his election as President of the Republic of South Africa.
ANC Ekurhuleni Regional Secretary Thembinkosi Nciza says more so, the REC wishes to congratulate President Cyril Ramaphosa for the appointment of a well-balanced, competent, youthful, gender-balanced and geographically diverse cabinet. The REC remains very confident and inspired by the leadership collective of the National Executive as led by President Cyril Ramaphosa.
Provincial Executive Council
The ANC in Ekurhuleni views the re- election of Cde David Makhura as the Premier of Gauteng as a step towards much needed improvement in the lives of the people of Gauteng. Furthermore, the REC welcomes the appointment of the Gauteng Provincial Executive better known as “Team Gauteng”. Cde David Makhura made serious efforts to appoint a dynamic, youthful, gender-balanced and competent team of ANC cadres who possess the necessary skills to drive the transformation agenda of the ANC in Gauteng and in South Africa at large.
The REC wishes to congratulate the appointment of Cde Fikile Mbalula as the Minister of Transport. “The ANC in Ekurhuleni is inspired by the energy and skills which the new Minister of Transport Cde Fikile Mbalula continues to possess. However, the REC wishes to draw the attention of Cde Fikile Mbalula to the continuing E-Toll saga in the Gauteng province, says Nciza.
The REC wishes to highlight the need for the new minister of Transport and the MEC of Public Transport and Road infrastructure, Cde Jacob Mamabolo to pay urgent attention to the E-Toll matter in Gauteng. The ANC continues to unapologetically stand firm behind the resolution of the 13th Provincial Conference of the ANC in Gauteng which resolved quite decisively on the E-Toll matter.” concludes Nciza.
