The former minister’s resignation is effective from 26 February 2018, the statement by Jackson Mthembu’s office said.

“While comrade Mbalula’s departure from Parliament will leave a void, we derive satisfaction from the knowledge that he will continue serving the movement as the ANC’s Head of Elections towards the 2019 General Elections campaign,” the statement added.
