The weekend’s hotly contested and at times tumultuous conference saw Lesufi emerge as  provincial chairperson after beating his rival Lebogang Maile to the post.  Lesufi received 575 votes  of the 1,119 votes cast. Maile got 543 votes.

Monday was not the first time Lesufi beat Maile  in an election. In 2018  he defeated Maile for the deputy chair position when former Gauteng  chair David Makhura was elected.

This weekend’s provincial conference was characterised by controversy and delays. Jabulani Sithole, an ANC member from Ekurhuleni attempted to interdict conference when he brought an urgent application to the Gauteng high court. The court dismissed the urgency of the matter  after the ANC defended its holding the conference .
