In what one senior Limpopo leader called “the conference within the conference”, Msiza was approached by a group led by Eastern Cape MEC Babalo Madikizela asking for Limpopo’s support of Phumulo Masualle for ANC secretary-general job come December.

Masualle is the deputy minister of public enterprises and former Eastern Cape chairperson and premier.

Despite stepping aside from formal party responsibilities, corruption accused Msiza has emerged as a central broker in the province which is expected to send the second biggest delegation to the national conference.

“He is the most powerful man in the province. You can’t talk about Limpopo without approaching him,” a member of the Eastern Cape delegation said.

Msiza is currently barred from taking active role in the ANC leadership positions due to the party’s step aside resolution which calls for those facing criminal charges to voluntarily vacate their offices or be summarily suspended. He is implicated in the VBS Mutual Bank looting scandal and is due to go on trial facing charges of racketeering, fraud, corruption and money laundering linked to the looting and collapse of VBS.
