Jobe asserts that this is because the newly elected provincial executive committee of Kwa-Zulu Natal did not apologize for backing former president Jacob Zuma.
Bheki Mtolo, the provincial secretary of Kwa-Zulu Natal, stated that their attitude was crystal clear: not only would they assist Zuma in his legal cases, but they would also mobilize support for him. This is claimed to have enraged certain ANC comrades who want the ANC to lose all power in KwaZulu-Natal province.
The RET comrade in Kwa-Zulu Natal province stated that the ANC is being opposed in the province due to the fact that step aside is politically and legally incorrect, and so they are pushing for the rules to be scrapped.
"There are elements of the ANC who want the ANC to lose power in KwaZulu-Natal because, ostensibly, KwaZulu-Natal is in the wrong for backing President Zuma, who is being unjustly humiliated. They assert that KZN is in error when it asserts that the step aside resolution is politically and legally incorrect, and when it seeks accountability "he said.
The Zuma factor in the province was a significant element in the expulsion of the former ANC Provincial Executive Committee members for allegedly neglecting to support Zuma. This clearly demonstrates that, regardless of whether people accept it or not, the former president remains highly relevant within party structures.
Mfoka Jobe revealed further that comrades such as Fikile Mbalula were not pleased that RET comrades won in eThekwini and now want the ANC to lose all power in the province.
"We also noted that Fikile Mbalula was dissatisfied with the ANC's victory in eThekwini, and now they want the entire province to be led by a different political party because they don't know how hard we worked to win KZN from the IFP, and that comrades died," he said.
