The former premier of Limpopo, Mr Sello Moloto has rejoined the ANC.

Moloto had joined the Congress of the People (COPE), after he was defeated during the ANC conference that was held at the University of Venda in 2008. Moloto later resigned as the premier of Limpopo. He was then succeeded by the current premier of Limpopo, Mr Cassel Mathale.

When Moloto rejoined the ANC, he was the provincial chairperson of COPE. He sent over his resignation to rejoin the ruling party last week.

Moloto was the premier of Limpopo from 2004 to 2009. He also served as the MEC for Health and Social Development from 1999 to 2004. He was the provincial secretary of the SACP from 1998 to 2000.

Moloto has been redeployed as the new South African ambassador to Mozambique by the ANC.

COPE´s provincial spokesperson, Mr Ike Kekana, confirmed on Tuesday that Moloto has rejoined the ANC. "Moloto has been offered the position of ambassador," he said. He urged members of his party to focus on the oncoming local government elections.

"Despite Moloto´s move, we are still sure that we will do well during the elections," said Kekana.
