This comes after several ANC comrades in the province have been making their way to Nkandla to see the former president while bearing gifts.
A group of regional leaders in the province when they visited Zuma for a closed door meeting, they brought with them six cows as a token of appreciation to the former president. It is alleged that they were seeking Zuma's advice as a province as they are preparing for both provincial and national conferences.
Sihle Zikalala says the Kwa-Zulu Natal Provincial Executive Committee agreed that they will meet with the national executive and state their stance which is to support Zuma in his court cases.
Zikalala stated that they cannot allow the former president to go alone as it has been their tradition to offer the former leader support.
"We can't allow former president to go alone in these challenges, the PEC has done so, they have been to the court and has been with the former president," said Zikalala.
The ANC chairperson in the Kwa-Zulu Natal province, Zikalala last year however dissuaded ANC comrades from attending Zuma's court cases while clad in party regalia. He is accused of having stopped attending Zuma's court cases as well which became the reason why he is now at loggerheads with Zuma supporters.
His recent utterances about supporting the former president are said to be part of his attempt to win back those who vowed to never vote for him again after he slammed Zuma's supporters for attending court wearing party regalia.
Sihle Zikalala also recently visited former president Jacob Zuma, and it is not clear what was the agenda. Some claim it's because he is trying to be in good books with the former president once again after he messed up last year.
