For Bheki Mtolo, who is the ANC provincial secretary in South Africa, the appointment of a woman as the province's premier in honor of Women's Month is crucial, and this has also shifted the narrative in South Africa.
Bheki Mtolo added, "We did pride ourselves that during Women's Month, we elected comrade Nomusa Ncube-Dube as the Premier.
After Sihle Zikalala resigned, the position of Premier might be filled by a woman for the first time in the country's history.
It was booed and heckled when Zikalala's slate was defeated at the convention. The new ANC Provincial Executive Committee would have humiliated him if they hadn't accepted his resignation.
A statement from the ANC in KwaZulu-Natal explains that the party had originally refused to accept Sihle Zikalala's resignation offer because he insisted that he wanted to go.
The selection of Nomusa Ncube-Dube as the first female Premier of Kwa-Zulu Natal province has pleased RET comrades, who feel she will add her skills to the office of the Premier.
"The people of KwaZulu-Natal warmly welcome KZN's first female premier. All the best to you, and congrats! "As they congratulated the new Premier, some said this.
