Former Free State MEC for Cogta, Sisi Ntombela, is officially the Premier of the Free State. This, after being elected and sworn in in the Provincial Legislature, this afternoon.



Ntombela is from this moment onwards the new premier for the Free State taking over from the long-serving Ace Magashule.


DA members in the Legislature have, however, questioned the counting of the votes and requested a recount.


After recounting the votes, Judge Mahube Molemela, who administered the process, announced that Ntombela won by 20 votes, while DA candidate, James Letuka, received only four votes.


Ntombela's victory will be celebrated tomorrow at the Free State Rugby Stadium.
