Confirmed | Meet the new KZN premier after the elections between the 3 candidates, see below

Nomusa Dube-Ncube, the new premier of KwaZulu-Natal.

Nomusa Dube-Ncube, the incoming premier of KwaZulu-Natal, has said that her election during Women's Month is a tribute to the lives of late women party activists like Victoria Mxenge, Dorothy Nyembe, and Winnie Madikizela-Mandela. After what Dube-Ncube called "tough" interviews, she was elected to lead the territory. She takes over for the outgoing Sihle Zikalala, whose term had expired.

She thanked the local chapter of the ANC and the national leadership for giving her this opportunity. She then added, "I want to thank the ANC in a very humble way, and I promise that we will never again let the people of KwaZulu-Natal down." The incoming premier was born in KwaMashu and hails from eThekwini. She already has a master's in public administration and is working toward a doctorate.

Ravinand Samlall Maharaj was elected to represent the KZN ward.

Prior to her appointment as ambassador to the Czech Republic, she served as the speaker for the eThekwini region. She once worked for the agency in charge of economic growth, tourism, and the environment. She declared, "We will be running with all of our structures in making sure that the ANC principles are here to join SA." Dube-Ncube spent 10 years as Cogta's MEC. Most recently, she served as the finance ministry's ministerial executive council MEC.

Bheki Mtolo, the provincial secretary, introduced Dube-Ncube by saying they were an innovation strategy to ensure young women receive equal rights and reduce discrimination based on sexual orientation. Speaking to the people of KwaZulu-Natal, Mtolo remarked, "This is a totally fundamental day for the ANC as we are making records by presenting formally and disclosing the key young lady head pick."


With her M.P.A. in hand, she has the authority to bring KZN to the next level by improving the province's infrastructure and fostering greater economic development. Those who voted for her must be well-informed about what they want from a local leader. Let me know what you think in the comments, and stick around for more behind-the-scenes news coverage.
