Minister Sisulu distances herself from posters and flyers circulating on the social media on ANC leadership

The Minister of Human Settlements, Lindiwe Sisulu, MP has noted with concern posters and flyers circulating on the social media platforms suggesting that she is a candidate to be a Deputy President of the ANC in a "slate" where Mr Mathews Phosa is a President and many other suggestions on the social media.

The Minister would like to put it on record again that she is not a candidate for any slate. She has not expressed any interest in the leadership of the ANC, either President or Deputy President. The Minister understands and respects the ANC processes.

Members of the ANC and all South Africans are urged to ignore all posters and flyers related to this matter. The Minister’s daily priority is to ensure that the human settlements sector delivers houses to the poorest of the poor as fast as possible.
