KZN premier denies being part of anti-Zuma plot

2012-01-01 20:00

Johannesburg - KwaZulu-Natal premier Zweli Mkhize has denied being part of a "plot" to oust President Jacob Zuma, the news web site www.iol.co.za reports.

He has also scoffed at persistent rumours that he will soon leave office and take up a diplomatic post in New Zealand.

According to the report, Mkhize re-affirmed his support for the ANC president "now and all the way" to the party’s elective conference to be held in Mangaung in December - ending months of speculation about a "fallout" between Mkhize and Zuma.

This, after Mkhize had been linked to the presidential ambitions of Human Settlements Minister Tokyo Sexwale.

The coverage added that earlier this year the Sunday Independent had reported that Mkhize was also closely associated with Sexwale, and their shared interest was to get into a position of ultimate power.

    When will we ever have politicians who care more for the electorate than for their personal ambitions? Probably never - its the nature of politicians to seek power, money and influence.

      There are no politicians in the world who care about the electorate

      My goodness, our presidents and rugby coaches should form an old boys club. None of them seem capable of doing their jobs properly. And the ones to vote them in, are the first to vote them out. Ha - one job I really would not want - the backstabbing is worse than in any corporate company!!!

    Any politician in the ANC who is part of a plot to unseat Zuma deserves a Bells!
