The African National Congress says Gauteng premier Mbhazima Shilowa's resignation today was his own decision.

Earlier, Shilowa denied that he had been "pushed" to resign but said he was doing it out of principle. He says he would not be able to, with conviction, publicly explain or defend the ANC national executive committee’s decision on axe former president Thabo Mbeki.

Shilowa was qouted saying he holds strong views on Mbeki’s dismissal and to pretend otherwise would be disingenuous.

Priemer spokesperson says the premier was not forced to resign but it was his own decision, he added that the recall of Mbeki was not fair.
