This means that the ANC’s candidates, who have been implicated in allegations of state capture and lying under oath remain on the party’s candidate lists. The IEC had received objections to cabinet ministers Nomvula Mokonyane, Bathabile Dlamini, Zweli Mkhize, Angie Motshekga and Bheki Cele.

Former ministers Malusi Gigaba, Mosebenzi Zwane, Faith Muthambi, Bongani Bongo, Tina Joemat-Pettersson and David Mahlobo were also mentioned.
