LISTEN: 'Jacob Zuma's charges are not causing divisions in KZN' -Sihle Zikalala

African National Congress (ANC) KwaZulu-Natal's provincial task team co-ordinator, Sihle Zikalala, says he intervened when ANC Chairperson Gwede Mantashe was heckled at the elective conference which later collapsed.

Speaking to Bongani Bigwa on the Breakfast show, Zikalala says anyone who accuses him of leaving Mantashe to fight for himself during the heckles should watch the recording to see how much he intervened.

Please tell me how many times I intervened and what were my interventions?

Zikalala admitted he was not in control of the delegates who were at the gathering.

READ: Blame game over collapsed ANC KZN elective conference

Yes, I can admit that but don't say we have not intervened. I'd better admit that rather than you creating a wrong impression because that impression seeks to deepen divisions and that is what is wrong and misleading.

Sihle Zikalala, ANC’s KZN provincial task team co-ordinator

Zikalala says that former President Jacob Zuma is not part of the divisions in the ANC in the province. He further says that divisions in the ANC KZN emerged in 2015 during the PEC.

I don't want to speak on that. The issues of charges against President Zuma do not come from the current leadership of the ANC, in fact, the initial charges were referred to him a long time ago before he even became the president of the country.

I don't believe that the chargers are coming from the current leadership of the ANC and have anything to do with the current leadership of the ANC.

Sihle Zikalala, ANC’s KZN provincial task team co-ordinator

The charges against President Zuma are not part of what divides the ANC in KZN.
