The ANC Youth League in Limpopo says it's not anxious by the outcome of the provincial general council.

The majority of ANC branches in Gauteng nominated Human Settlements Minister Lindiwe Sisulu as deputy president and backed Senzo Mchunu, the former premier of the eastern province of KwaZulu-Natal for secretary-general.

Though the Limpopo nomination has widened the gap between the two leading candidates, placing Ramaphosa firmly in the lead, KwaZulu-Natal is likely to Dlamini-Zuma a large boost in her figures.

But the province also saw a high number of abstentions: 56 for the position of president, 67 for the position of deputy president, 71 for national chairperson, 72 for the position of secretary general, 81 for the position of deputy secretary general and 76 for the position of treasurer.

His main rival, Nkosazana Dlamini-Zuma, Zuma's ex-wife and favored candidate, was supported by 64 branches on the province, which include the nation's commercial center, Johannesburg, and Pretoria.

Someone dropped a gold coin - valued at $145 - in a Salvation Army red kettle outside a west Omaha Hy-Vee Supermarket on Saturday. Izquierdo said Belk will be raising funds through its "Home for the Holidays" campaign for Habitat for Humanity.

Under the stewardship of chairman Sihle Zikalala, the province has not been shy in voicing its support for Dlamini-Zuma.

Provincial chairperson David Mabuza emerged as the favourite for the position of deputy president, after he took 434 branch nominations.

Rules 11 and 12 of the ANC constitution stipulate that "a person must have been a member in good standing for at least 10 years" before they could be nominated to the national leadership.

For the position of national chairperson‚ Nathi Mthethwa was nominated 358 branches‚ beating current ANC secretary-general Gwede Mantashe‚ who was nominated by 190 branches.

"You have to understand, this is KZN and we are ANC for Nkosazana all the way". "Because it means the dispute process is done as a formality". Phosa had expected to be nominated by some branches in the province, but the only nominations were for Dlamini-Zuma, Ramaphosa and "Unity". "If that is what he is taking to court, that would be interesting", Mantashe said mockingly.
