ANC KZN to elect new leaders
Durban - ANC delegates in the eThekwini region, the biggest in KwaZulu-Natal, will on Saturday elect new leaders.
The elections are hotly contested with health MEC Dr Sibongiseni Dhlomo and former provincial ANC Youth League leader Nhlakanipho Ntombela fighting for the chairmanship position.
By 10:00 more than 500 delegates had packed the Olive Convention Centre in Durban.
"We are impressed with the level of preparation, we believe this conference will proceed smoothly," ANC provincial secretary Sihle Zikalala said.
He said delegates were ready to engage politically.
"The conference is not only about elections but also about looking on policy and programmes of the ANC," Zikalala said.
Ten other conferences held in the province had proceeded well.
"This shows a high level of maturity amongst members in the province and also reflects unity in the organisation," Zikalala said.
