Durban – The ANC in KwaZulu-Natal has thrown its weight behind President Jacob Zuma as it prepares for next week’s National General Council (NGC).

Speaking at the two day Provincial General Council at the Coastlands Hotel in South Beach, Durban, ANC chairperson Senzo Mchunu said delegates the ANC in KZN have always supported Zuma, no matter what.

“President Jacob Zuma comes from KwaZulu-Natal. He was born and bred and grew up here. He opened his eyes and ears and started walking his political paths in KZN.

“He cut his political teeth in this province… We have supported our president all the time without fail in many conferences and many situations,” said Mchunu.

He said questions surrounding KZN’s support for Zuma was an agenda from some quarters.  

“We honestly don’t know where it comes from. We can only respond by saying there is an agenda behind these stories. When it comes to our support for the president as the province or as individuals, we don’t go along that agenda.

“I think we must grow up as a province and as comrades and operate at a level where we are able to trust one another as comrades and mature in our internal politics.”

He said if comrades had issues with one another they should raise them honestly and openly.

“When we go to the NGC as the province we will be expecting that when it comes to issues of the president, we will be in full support of President Jacob Zuma without a doubt,” said Mchunu.
