- Certain ANC factions are warning Kwa-Zulu Natal party representatives to be careful when deciding the fates of a number of regional leaders
- Regions have threatened to “revolt” if the KZN ANC does not stay “consistent” with its decisions
- Among those leaders whose futures needed to be decided is eThekwini Mayor, Zandile Gumede
The Kwa-Zulu Natal (KZN) African National Congress (ANC) is facing a series of tough decisions today regarding the futures of regional leaders.
City Press reported that certain factions of the ANC are putting pressure on the KZN government to be “consistent” with their decisions, or else face “revolt” from other regions.
The Provincial Executive Committee (PEC) is meeting today to make some decisions regarding a number of regional leaders, including embattled eThekwini Mayor, Zandile Gumede.
Gumede is former SA President, Jacob Zuma’s last powerful ally in KZN and was given the go-ahead this week to return to work following her suspension.
The PEC will also have to decide the fates of Mike Mabuyakhulu, who is facing fraud charges, Musa Zondi, in connection with an alleged kidnapping and murder, and Ntuthuko Mahlaba, the Newcastle Mayor being investigated in connection to the murder of an ANC Youth leader.
According to City Press, the PEC is also considering sacking a number of leaders, following disastrous results recorded in a municipal performance report.
