FORMER Department of Education MEC Peggy Nkonyeni has supported the bid that deputy president Cyril Ramaphosa be the next ANC president and vowed to persuade other branch members of the ruling party across KZN to do the same.

Nkonyeni said this in her memorial lecture for the ANC member and former United Democratic Front activist­ Sponono David Gasa in Ward 2, kwaMbili village outside Harding last Sunday.

The event was attended by Harding ANC members, Umuziwabantu Mayor, Dixie Nciki and Gasa’s family.

Ward 2 is named “Sponono Branch” by the ruling party and Wiseman Mbotho is the branch secretary.

Speaking to Fever Mbotho called on ANC members to support Ramaphosa as the next president at the December elective conference of the ruling party.

Mbotho announced the proposed names of people that branch members agreed to support at the Ugu Regional Congress.

Mzwandile Mkhwanazi was announced the next regional chairperson, Sfiso Shinga, deputy chairperson, Howard Msomi, secretary, Siphumlile Mthiyane, deputy secretary and Nkazi Mavundla, treasurer.

“Branch members believe that these proposed people can guide Ugu district to a better level,” said Mbotho.

Howard Msomi from the South African National Civic Organisation condemned ANC members who use social media to announce the names of people they want elected at the national congress.

“The ruling party is not ready to lose trustworthy leaders like Senzo Mchunu, Peggy Nkonyeni and others. We supported President Jacob Zuma when he was elected president and now we want him to step aside and allow his deputy Ramaphosa to lead,” said Mkhwanazi.

Nkonyeni said Ramaphosa has good political credentials and is a good thinker. “We are ready to fight for Ramaphosa to become the next ANC president,” said Nkonyeni.

She congratulated EFF leaders Julius Malema and Mbuyiseni Ndlozi, who recently graduated and said they have paved the way for the young people of the country.

Nkonyeni, Mchunu and other MECs were replaced after the 2015 elective conference, which the Pietermaritzburg High Court deemed invalid on Tuesday.
