Rocky Malebane-Metsing was a member of the African National Congress in the 1990s. In 1988, a coup ousted Lucas Mangope, president of Bophuthatswana, and installed Malebane-Metsing, who at the time was leader of the Progressive People's Party, as president. Fifteen hours later, the South African government sent troops in and reinstated Mangope.[1] After the 1994 elections, he was appointed MEC for Agriculture in North West Province of South Africa, but he resigned from the ANC after political differences.[2][3][4]
