Penny Penny gunned for the top ANC post in Limpopo, but he lucked out and Stanley Mathabatha retained his position.
As Briefly.co.za reported previously, the disco king was tired of the inequality and tribalism, that has caused a rift between the Limpopo residents, so he decided to try and overthrow the province ANC Premier, Stanley Mathabatha.
However, according to Penny Penny, the public was his and he would continue to criticise the leadership and tribalism in the province.
“I never pulled out, but the campaign against me was just stronger. I never lost because the public is mine. The truth is the truth. I will continue to criticise service delivery and tribalism," he said.
According to The Sowetan, he said if the leadership looked after the Limpopo public, he does not have a problem. However, he did describe the election process as being unfair.
"If it was an independent person running the conference, I was supposed to win," he said, adding it was not fair.
According to the legendary musician, he was betrayed by sub-region of Giyani because he could not buy their loyalty.
"They know I cannot give them money. I'm not corrupt, and I do things straight”, he said. But Penny Penny is not giving up, adding he is a born leader.
Meanwhile, Fikile Mbalula shared a photo of Penny Penny and social media users reacted to his defeat.
