Durban - The SA Communist Party in KwaZulu-Natal has vowed to oppose attempts to have a succession debate at the upcoming ANC national general council (NGC).

"We... will discourage any attempt to narrow individualist and divisive interest designed to focus the NGC entering the succession debate leading up to the 2012 elective conference," SACP provincial general secretary Themba Mthembu told reporters in Durban.

The SACP held its provincial general council over the weekend.

Mthembu said the alliance had agreed that the succession debate should be raised at an appropriate time.

"Yes, there are people who are desperate for leadership. These people were positioning themselves for 2012. We will resist any attempt for the NGC to deal with the issue of leadership," said Mthembu.

Mthembu said the SACP wanted the ANC to have a tension-free NGC.

"We promise that our attending the NGC will be guided by our responsibility to assist in strengthening the unity of the ANC and its alliance partners," said Mthembu.

The ANC NGC takes place in Durban from September 20 to 24.

The SACP in the province also called for the resignation of the board of Ithala bank, a state-owned entity.

This, following the suspension of it head Sipho Shabalala, and the seizure his assets, including the City Royal Hotel in Pietermaritzburg, a farm in Othandweni, a Range Rover and a Mercedes-Benz.

Eight people were arrested during the raids by the Hawks and the Asset Forfeiture Unit in August as pat of an investigation into tender fraud said to involve R200m.

Shabalala was not one of those arrested.

The SACP also called for the respect of the office of President Jacob Zuma.

"The SACP in KZN condemns with the strongest possible terms all attempts by the tendency within the alliance, including the media, to treat the office of the president with disrespect," said Mthembu.

"The motives are the same prior to Polokwane. There are people who don’t want to see an ANC led by president Zuma," said Mthembu.
