Newly elected African National Congress Secretary General Ace Magashule.
DURBAN - The African National Congress (ANC) in KwaZulu-Natal (KZN) will hold its elective conference between March and April 2018.
ANC secretary general Ace Magashule made the announcement while briefing the media on Tuesday.
This after a court in 2017 ruled that the 2015 conference that elected Sihle Zikalala as chairperson was illegitimate.
It meant the ANC&39;s leadership in that province could not attend the party&39;s elective congress in December in any official capacity, unless they were attending as normal branch delegates.
Magashule on Tuesday defended his ability to lead the governing party&39;s renewal process in KZN and the Free State.
ANCKZN briefing by SG Ace Magashule to start shortly. eNCA understands that the interim structure will have 21 members. They include Sihle Zikalala, Super Zuma, Cyril Xaba, Peggy Nkonyeni and Mike Mabuyakhulu. NEC members to include Edna Molewa and Dakota Legoete. @eNCA pic.twitter.com/CDZQdi7Ooy— Siphamandla Goge (@SiphamandlaGoge) January 23, 2018
Former ANC KwaZulu-Natal chairperson, Sihle Zikalala is the party&39;s new provincial task team coordinator.
The ANC&39;s national executive committee set up the task team to try and resolve running court battles in the province.
