ANC secretary-general Ace Magashule will at midday on Wednesday address the media on the latest developments in the North West.

The media briefing which will take place at Luthuli House is likely to focus on the political future of the province’s embattled premier Supra Mahumapelo.

President Cyril Ramaphosa has appointed an Inter-Ministerial Committee to investigate the governance problems in the province.

Mahumapelo has reneged on his pledge to resign and has instead taken a leave of absence and appointed Finance MEC Wendy Nelson as the acting premier.

The North West recently saw violent protests as residents demanded the removal of Mahumapelo who they accuse of corruption and not doing enough to deliver basic services.
