DURBAN - KwaZulu-Natal's premier candidate, Nomusa Dube-Ncube, has welcomed her nomination by the provincial ANC.
This will make her the province's first female premier.
She says her focus is to tackle unemployment and other socio-economic issues facing the province.
"I do accept the deployment by the ANC and also wish to thank the trust they've given me to be able to lead in government.
"I'll be working with ANC leadership and all colleagues in government to ensure we deal with crippling issues we still face in KZN, the socio economic challenges," she said.
