ANC spokesperson Keith Khoza has resigned, the ruling party said on Friday.
"The African National Congress regretfully announces the resignation of Comrade Keith Khoza as National Communications Manager of the ANC, effective 1 March 2016," national spokesperson Zizi Kodwa said in a brief statement.
He was rejoining the public service in Gauteng.
"Since joining the administrative corps of the ANC, Comrade Keith has been an invaluable part of the Department of Information and Publicity and the ANC at large, selflessly serving the movement and for this we thank him."
"We are confident he will not be lost to the ANC communications machinery and we wish him nothing but the very best in his future."
This was the second senior resignation in the African National Congress this week. Chief Whip Stone Sizani resigned from Parliament on Wednesday.
