Newly KZN ANC leaders breaks silence about the leaving of Zikalala. We did not want him to go

They declared on Monday that their choice for prime minister will be current minister of finance Nomusa Dube-Ncube.

If this happens, Dube-Ncube will make history as the first female provincial leader.

Secretary of the province Bheki Mtolo claims that Zikalala's removal from office was never a priority.

No one ever pushed him to go, but he did make an offer the leaders ultimately turned down.

However, Zikalala was successful in convincing the leaders, "which forced us to concur with him as our senior and a cadre of the movement."

A majority of Mtolo's party did not agree with the premier's resignation offer, but "we thought it was vital to think about it and respect it," he said.

Those worried about the current administration's feelings regarding Zikalala can rest easy, he said. He also promised to keep his membership in the party at a high level.

He won't leave any kind of mess for the citizens of our great province to deal with. Our people still need him to perform a lot of work as the leader of the movement to help them, and he has promised to do that.

Mtolo claims that Zikalala made numerous important contributions to the celebration.

For his time spent serving in the ANC government, we owe him a big debt. As leaders, we must ensure that the movement remains united in the run-up to the election in November.

Helping "the masses of people," he added, would be the party's top goal.

We've come a long way in our fight against poverty, sexual assault against women, and crime.

Zikalala endorsed outgoing President Jacob Zuma in his farewell address this week. Several politicians, he claimed, have accused him of selling out Zuma.

I have backed President Zuma since he took office on June 14, 2005, and I continue to do so now. He went on to say that I admired him as a leader and was grateful for his willingness to die for South Africa's independence.

Moreover, Zikalala stated that rumors of his cooperation with President Cyril Ramaphosa were a "false narrative.

A member of the ANC is expected to accept and work with the organization's leadership at all times, regardless of whether or not they voted for them.

Zikalala will continue to serve as a KZN assembly member.
