The ANC in Kwazulu Natal is still deciding on whether to appeal the Pietermaritzburg High Court decision which found that the current KZN executive was unlawfully elected.
EWN reporter Ziyanda Ngcobo says ANC NEC will meet tomorrow to decide on whether to disband the current leadership or to appeal the court ruling.
Political analyst at UKZN, Lukhona Mnguni says the turbulence in the KZN ANC stems from divisions within two power bases and the current national dynamics. He says the ANC in that province needs to re-establish itself and find political stability.
I think the ANC needs to re-establish the centre. It also shows how the dynamic of the ANC has become captured by personal interest and ambitions of certain leaders.— Lukhona Mnguni, Political analyst
Whatever characterises problems within the ANC - it is really personality politics, whether so and so is aligned to another leader and who should take over... It is really a problem, where politics have become personalities rather than the vision and the ideas that should drive the movement.— Lukhona Mnguni, Political analyst
