The African National Congress has acknowledged the contribution made by the former premier Mbazima Shilowa who resigned as premier of Gauteng on Monday.

The party said that Shilowa should be replaced without delay.ANC liaison officer Brian Sokuthu said that the ANC national working committee has thanked Mr Shilowa for the contribution he has made over the last nine years as premier of Gauteng.

Meanwhile the Independent Democratic leader Patricia de Lille has invited Shilowa to join her party. De Lille says Shilowa can contribute to the well being of the country in terms of transformation instead of wasting his talent.

De Lille says Shilowa's resignation is evidence of deep divisions within the ANC, as the purging of Mbeki had come through what she termed the “Jacob Zuma camp”.
