OPINION | I Am Ready To Stand As The Next ANC President - Zweli Mkhize Claims

Dr. Zweli Mkhize, the former minister of health, has given the clearest indication yet that he will challenge the ANC's organization, that is, if the controlling party's branches nominate him for the job.

This comes as the African National Congress prepares for public elections in December of this year.

Observing a gathering of Amabutho and Izinduna (Zulu Regiments and standard pioneers) who attended the customary wedding of his son, Dedanimabhunu Mkhize, the former priest stated that he will do whatever the ANC's plans need of him. This was a direct outcome of regular ANC pioneers gathering at Mkhize's Willowton home in Pietermaritzburg and urging him to volunteer for the organization.

Mkhize stated that he had consistently accepted public help and that he would not be concerned about doing so in compliance with party regulations.

"ANC branches will meet and select, but I can guarantee that if they contact me, I will continue to serve as I have consistently done. I have served despite the annoyance of politically-authorized racial segregation, and I will continue to serve in whatsoever location they assign us, respecting their decision "said Mkhize.

He also acknowledged that a few political leaders are collaborating with exclusive media outlets and journalists to tarnish his reputation.

"It has become astonishingly clear that there are a few political pioneers working with enormous organizations, enlisting private educated professionals and eager journalists to discover anything, including some information dating as far back as 2005, when I served as cash MEC in the area. We believe that several of the proposed requests are supported by reputable officials "he remarked.
