Former Save Mpumalanga ANC group leader, Peter Nyoni, has accepted nomination for provincial chairmanship.

The position is vacant following the election of David Mabuza to the position of ANC deputy president during the party’s 54th National Elective Conference in Nasrec in December.

Nyoni is among the six contenders that are vying for the position.

Others include  the current Secretary Mandla Ndlovu, former Deputy Chairman Charles Makola, former Secretary Lucky Ndinisa and veteran Fish Mahlalela.

The Bohlabela branches hope Nyoni has what it takes to unite the divided ANC in Mpumalanga.

Nyoni  promises to unite the provincial ANC and return those who left the party for various reasons that include gate keeping.

“I’ve come to indicate to them that my availability is not to seek followers, but to come and serve them. I believe that we should depart from rhetoric unity and embark on effective unity. We should preach unity so that even those that are outside will hear that we are talking about unity and they must also come and join them, in case they had other ideas which are not in line with the kind of unity that we want in the ANC,” he said.
