JOHANNESBURG (Reuters) – South Africa’s deputy president, David Mabuza, will be sworn in as a lawmaker for the ruling African National Congress (ANC) in Pretoria on Tuesday, the party said, after he requested a postponement last Wednesday.

President Cyril Ramaphosa said on Wednesday Mabuza had wanted to address allegations that he had brought the ANC into disrepute as he “believes that the ANC should advance the electoral mandate in an environment of public trust.”
