JOHANNESBURG - Willies Mchunu has been named as Premier of Kwazulu-Natal.

The ANC says he was chosen because of his seniority, experience and skills. 

The announcement comes after Senzo Mchunu resigned from the post - apparently under instructions from the party.

The ANC held a briefing a little earlier. It&39;s dismissed reports that several MECs will also be removed.
