The African National Congress in KwaZulu-Natal has thrown its weight behind President Jacob Zuma in light of last week’s Constitutional Court judgment.
Party provincial chair Sihle Zikalala made the announcement during a voter registration rally in Mandeni, northern KwaZulu-Natal.
The ANC in KwaZulu-Natal says it stands by President Zuma.
This after the Constitutional Court ruled that he failed to uphold the Constitution. Some party elders have called on the President to step down.
KwaZulu-Natal has always been Zuma’s strongest support base. The party was in Mandeni to encourage voters to register.
A month ago the community revolted against the ANC burning property including eight factories demanding the removal of a local PR Councillor. Zikalala says those who thought that the ANC was finished in Mandeni thought wrong.
Some of the workers employed in the burnt factories have not resumed duties but Zikalala promised them that government will ensure that they have their jobs back.
