Zikalala was formerly a popular figure in the Kwa-Zulu Natal area, but over the years, his friends have accused him of being a flip-flopper and a coward. Some claimed that the ANC National Executive Committee had failed him, as he had informed them of the difficulties facing KZN, but no action was taken.
Sihle Zikalala was consequently accused of "betraying" his colleagues and former president Jacob Zuma, but he denied these charges as disruptive.
The ANC is scheduled to interview three candidates for the position of premier of Kwa-Zulu Natal. Nomusa Dube-Ncube, Mbali Frazer, and Amanda Bani are the candidates. This is a historic moment, as Kwa-Zulu Natal is about to elect its first female premier.
Some have described Nomusa Ncube-Dube as a diligent worker with extensive experience in local government, and she is poised to take over. She did not make it into the Kwa-Zulu Natal provincial executive committee, as her nomination fell short of the required number of votes.
Some Kwa-Zulu Natal province comrades stated, "Obviously, the position belongs to Nomusa Dube-Ncube; let's not beat around the bush about it, we know it."
The best thing is that Kwa-Zulu Natal province will have its first female premier, regardless of who is nominated. This is a pivotal year for the province.
Bheki Mtolo, provincial-secretary of the ANC in Kwa-Zulu Natal, confirms that finance MEC Nomusa Dube-Ncube is "the priority name" for the Premier candidate to replace the recently resigned Sihle Zikalala.
