She unsuccessfully challenged Mxolisi Dukwana for the Free State chair position but lost so badly that she failed to even make it into the PEC.  

ANC Chairperson Gwede Mantashe also made remarks that further discredited Ntombela's leadership.

He told conference delegates there was no government at either provincial or local government in the Free State.
