Dr Zukile Luyenge’s resignation from the ANC

17 February 2019

The Office of the ANC Chief Whip confirms the resignation of serving ANC Member of Parliament, Dr Zukile Luyenge, as a member of the ANC. As it is common practice, the ANC Chief Whip, comrade Jackson Mthembu, confirmed Dr Luyenge’s defection with him after his resignation was reported in the media over the weekend.

In light of this development, we will write to the Office of the Speaker of the National Assembly informing her that Dr Luyenge is no longer a member of the ANC, therefore immediately forfeiting his seat as an ANC MP.

The ANC is currently processing his replacement and will make an announcement in this regard at an appropriate time.

Issued by the Office of the ANC Chief Whip, comrade Jackson Mthembu.
