South Africa’s Sexwale Seeks ANC Presidency, Sunday Times Says

May 13 (Bloomberg) -- South African Human Settlements Minister Tokyo Sexwale plans to challenge President Jacob Zuma for the position of leader of the ruling African National Congress in December, the Sunday Times reported, citing unidentified members of his campaign.

Sexwale’s supporters plan to install current secretary-general Gwede Mantashe as deputy president and Deputy Sports Minister Fikile Mbalula as secretary-general, the Johannesburg-based newspaper said today. The members declined to be identified because campaigning for party positions hasn’t officially started.

“The minister will, whenever the time is right, make his interests clear,” Sexwale’s spokesman Xolani Xundu said in a mobile phone interview today. He declined to comment further.
