Once again the factions within the ANC show their ugly heads as rumours surface that the pro-Zuma faction has turned on once-supporter Sihle Zikalala.

It seems the KwaZulu-Natal chair has lost favour with the Zuma supporters.

Under the disguise of wanting a female premier, the Zuma supporters within the ANC's Women's League has united against Zikalala, according to reports.

Zikalala apparently sold out Zuma interests during a recent KZN ANC conference. He has been on the fence for a while now, unsure if he should support Zuma or not.

The former Zuma-supporter has also become quite friendly with Ramaphosa, something that the former president's supporters did not miss.

Zikalala also failed to deliver on a reshuffle in the province that would have served Zuma's faction's interests, apparently.
