Durban - Amid the political chaos in eThekwini municipality, deputy secretary general of the ANC Jessie Duarte is due in Durban on Tuesday to meet with party structures.
The meeting will include provincial executive committee members (PEC) and over 100 ANC councillors in the troubled municipality.
Among the issues to be discussed is the political impasse in eThekwini metro and the impasse in the ANC eThekwini region where one faction is rejecting the regional task team which was put in place when the regional executive committee was disbanded.
Senior members who were seen walking into the party’s headquarters in central Durban include Mluleki Ndobe, the convener of the disputed eThekwini ANC region task team. Earlier, the provincial chairperson, Sihle Zikalala, was seen leaving with his squad of bodyguards.
Although the agenda of the meeting has been kept under wraps, Independent Media was able to establish that Duarte was going tell the party councillors to toe the line and vote for the incoming mayor, Mxolisi Kaunda and his team.
