Durban - Outgoing ANC KwaZulu-Natal chairperson Zweli Mkhize on Friday urged party branches to work for the masses.

"KwaZulu-Natal leadership learnt a lesson that it is important for both party and government leaders at all levels to listen to the voices of ordinary people and respond to their plight at all times," Mkhize said.

This was important in reducing service delivery protests in the province, he said.

"In our case we have seen masses install and remove governments. They cannot be right to put us into office and be wrong to take us out of office," Mkhize said.

He said self-serving leaders were a liability to both the ANC and the people.

Mkhize was speaking at the African National Congress's three-day provincial general council at the University of KwaZulu-Natal in Westville, Durban.

He also called for the ANC to work towards eradicating political violence.

"There have been instances where leaders have been targeted and killed in intra-party attacks.

"There has been a worrying wave of deaths inside the ANC, sometimes involving ANC members and supporters," said Mkhize. He said it was up to the ANC to "stamp this tendency out".

Mkhize will be replaced as ANC provincial chairperson during the three-day ANC provincial general council.

Provincial deputy chairperson Willies Mchunu and Education MEC Senzo Mchunu have been nominated to succeed him.
