THE KZN provincial ANC Secretary Sihle Zikalala has distance himself from allegations that ANC top brass will disband the provincial executive committee due to division.

Addressing media on Sunday at Ixopo, Zikalala said the matter came from social network that PEC has been disbanded. “There are no reasons to disband our provincial executive committee and we are working very well. There is also a progress of action,” he said.

Allegations of disbandment follow reports about the cracks between faction following Zikalala and provincial chairperson Senzo Mchunu. The reports said they no longer see eye to eye because of political factions.

This follows a meeting of ANC top six attended by President Jacob Zuma, Deputy President Cyril Ramaphosa, Chairperson Baleka Mbethe, Secretary General Gwede Mantashe, Deputy Secretary Jessie Duarte and Treasury Zweli Mkhize last week.

The rumour alleges that the ANC in KZN is falling apart because of 2017 ANC national conference. The report said the province is divided with one Zikalala faction supporting AU chairperson Nkosazana Dlamini Zuma to be the next president while Mchunu’s faction supports Ramaphosa as the next president.

Zikalala disputes the allegation of disbandment saying that the meeting with ANC top six was to discuss issues of unity.

“There was no animosity at all and disbandment never arose at the meeting with national leadership,” said Zikalala.

He said it was just the social network by certain persons that the province has been disbanded and it became an issue. Zikalala said he works well with Mchunu­, dismissing allegations that they are no longer seeing eye to eye.
