KZN ANC divided on party's top spot

Eyewitness News (EWN) has confirmed that the African National Congress (ANC) in Kwa-Zulu Natal says that its branches and regions are not united on who they want to lead the ANC after the party conference in December.

Kwazulu-Natal is seen as the key province to win in the party’s leadership battle.

NEC members Dr Nkosazana Dlamini Zuma , Jeff Radebe and treasurer Zweli Mkhize are being mentioned as candidates for the party’s top positions.

Stephen Grootes spoke to EWN's Ziyanda Ngcobo.

The province is split into three and choosing three different candidates to put forward on the list in December, and they have said that they do not want to be in a position where they have three candidates vying for the same position.

Provincial chair Senzo Mchunu is believed to be campaigning in the province on behalf of Deputy President Cyril Ramaphosa amid a fallout in the region over Mchunu's axing and the court case challenging the current leader Sihle Zikalala’s legitimacy.

It is difficult to say whether or not they will be able to unite the party at this point in time. I think most of it rests on what happens during the court challenge which is set to be heard in August.
