Date for eThekwini ANC Conference set
Durban - The much awaited ANC elective conference in the eThekwini region has been pushed to February, the party's provincial secretary Sihle Zikalala said on Wednesday.
"The elective conference is now going to be held around February next year," he said.
The party's elective conference in the eThekwini region, the most powerful region in KwaZulu-Natal, was supposed to take place before the end of this year.
Zikalala said the delay was caused by the fact that the ANC wanted to have a "clear process" that would ensure the conference went smoothly.
The eThekwini region is regarded as the most powerful region because it incorporates the City of Durban, KwaZulu-Natal’s economic powerhouse. The eThekwini municipality also has a huge R28bn budget.
Zikalala said the conference could not be held in January as the ruling party would be celebrating its centenary.
Other regions still to hold their conferences were KwaDukuza, Moses Mabhida and Ukhahlamba, he said.
"We have eleven regions in this province. Conferences went smoothly in all other regions."
