Durban – The ANC in KwaZulu-Natal has hit out at the ANC in Gauteng, calling it "mischievous" for issuing a statement asking President Jacob Zuma to "do the right thing" following the recent Constitutional Court ruling on Nkandla.

"We will not entertain the possibility of a replacement for President Jacob Zuma; that is not only ill-discipline, it is also mischievous," said ANC provincial spokesperson Mdumiseni Ntuli.  

The Gauteng ANC's provincial executive committee (PEC) issued a statement on Tuesday calling on Zuma to "do the right thing" by fixing the political damage caused by the Nkandla matter.

The Constitutional Court found Zuma had flouted the Constitution when he failed to comply with Public Protector Thuli Madonsela's remedial action regarding payment for non-security upgrades at his private residence.

Ntuli said the ANC in KZN refused to be part of an agenda intended to cause divisions in the party, before he lambasted the ANC in Gauteng.

Gauteng ANC in its 'own little corner'

"As a province, we are united behind the ANC and its leadership, including President Jacob Zuma," said Ntuli.

He said a decision had been taken by the national executive committee to accept the Constitutional Court ruling and to accept Zuma's apology.

"For them [Gauteng ANC] to allegedly go to a PEC meeting and make such statements is mischievous. Gauteng cannot go into its own little corner and decide otherwise," said Ntuli.

The ANC’s provincial working committee held a special meeting on Monday at the its Durban offices where it discussed the ruling, among other matters.

ANC provincial secretary Super Zuma said in a statement that they had rejected a call for Zuma to step down.

"This coalition against President Zuma has naked intentions to weaken and tarnish the glorious image of the ANC as the leader of the national democratic revolution," he said.
