ANC KZN: ANC doesn't have an obligation to seek Mthembu's approval to deploy him

Spokesperson for the African National Congress in KwaZulu Natal, Mdumiseni Ntuli says the ANC doesn't negotiate deployment with its own cadres.

Afternoon Drive's Xolani Gwala was asking Ntuli about the South African Communist Party (SACP) provincial secretary, Themba Mthembu, who has been appointed as the new agriculture MEC.

Mthembu earlier told Afternoon Drive producers that he had not yet accepted the offer, and has asked the ANC to give him 24 hours to consult the SACP.

Four MECs have been removed from their departments, by new Premier Willies Mchunu, who replaced Senzu Mchunu last month.

The ANC takes decisions about who must be deployed for what responsibility. Cadres are subjected to the political authority of the African National Congress.

The cadreship of the ANC does not choose where it must be deployed. It's the ANC that decides where its cadreship must go.

Previously on the Afternoon Drive show, Mthembu condemned what he called political instability within the ANC in KwaZulu Natal.

He talked to Xolani soon after former premier, Senzo Mchunu's resignation.
