Durban - The campaign for former eThekwini mayor Zandile Gumede to be re-elected as chairperson of the ANC's biggest region has kicked off ahead of the regional conference expected to be held in December.
Gumede lost her ANC position after her regional executive structure’s term of office elapsed last year. The structure was replaced with a regional task team in June.
Spokesperson for Gumede’s supporters, Mzomuhle Dube said almost all of 110 branches met with Gumede in Umlazi at the weekend to inform her that they intended to nominate her for the position she held since December 2015.
“We invited her as branches on Sunday to Umlazi Comtech high school to address us, we also told informed her that we see her and Musa Nciki (potential regional secretary) as people to lead us.
“She will wait for the nomination, but for now the general view is that she should be the chairperson,” said Dube.
