Changes in KZN DA leadership

2010-10-19 20:08
Durban - KwaZulu-Natal Democratic Alliance member John Steenhuisen announced his resignation as provincial party leader on Tuesday.

"I am still the member of the DA. I have resigned for personal reasons which I don’t want to discuss. I also want to focus on my work in the KZN legislature," said Steenhuisen.

Steenhuisen was leader of the DA in the province, as well as leader of the party in the legislature and its spokesperson for health.

His deputy, Sizwe Mchunu, would take over as the new provincial leader as from Monday.

"I want to focus on my parliamentary role. I will always be a member of the DA," Steenhuisen said.

Mchunu was happy about his new appointment.

"I am happy, even though it is not the first time. I am happy to be in the leadership role."

Mchunu said there would not be any changes when he took office. The DA would continue running in the same way.

The party had started working on its local government elections campaign, scheduled to take place next year.

"We have been working very hard preparing for the elections. We have already started screening candidates."

The DA wanted to make sure that every ward in the province had a party representative. His party was ready for the elections, Mchunu said.
