Durban - The ANC's eThekwini region in KwaZulu-Natal publicly endorsed President Jacob Zuma for a second term, the Sowetan reported on Thursday.

"As the region, we are united behind the ANC and its NEC, which is led by President Jacob Zuma," regional secretary Bheki Ntshangase was quoted as saying.

"Our regional executive committee is happy with the provincial leadership and that of President Zuma. Our organisation and the country are in capable hands."

EThekwini is the ANC's biggest region, with over 100 branches and more than 66 000 members.

The region was expected to send a strong delegation to the ANC's national elective conference in Mangaung in December.

The party had barred its members from openly declaring their support for candidates until nominations opened in October. However, Ntshangase heaped praise on Zuma, saying it was the first time under his leadership that all the provinces were focusing on the presidential infrastructure commission, according to the report.

"We have seen the process of the implementation of the National Health Insurance under the very same leadership of President Zuma, and the implementation of the National Planning Commission," he was quoted as saying.

"We see no reason to doubt his leadership moving forward. We have confidence in the leadership that was elected in Polokwane."
