Senzo Mchunu.

Former KwaZulu-Natal premier Senzo Mchunu is among the ANC’s KZN leaders being considered for top party posts ahead of the party’s national elections.

Mchunu, currently the minister of Water and Sanitation, mobilised support for President Cyril Ramaphosa in the province during the 2017 ANC national conference, which elected the latter as the party’s president.

While Mchunu’s support of Ramaphosa back in 2017, when most current ANC provincial leaders were lobbying for former African Union (AU) chairperson Nkosazana Dlamini-Zuma created tensions between himself and certain ANC leaders in KZN, the rivalry could soon be a thing of the past.
