'Motlanthe named as president'
The deputy leader of South Africa's ruling ANC, Kgalema Motlanthe, will be appointed as the country's president after the resignation of Thabo Mbeki, party sources said on Monday.
Motlanthe, who already sits in the Cabinet, was named to take over from Mbeki until elections due around April next year during a meeting of the ANC's parliamentary caucus, ANC members of parliament told Reuters on condition of anonymity.
