DURBAN– South Africa’s ruling party, the African National Congress (ANC) has described as fruitful its meeting between the party’s top six and representatives of the ANC structures in KwaZulu-Natal Province here over the weekend as South African and ANC President Cyril Ramaphosa led a delegation of top national leaders here to assess their readiness to hold its provincial conference.
ANC National Executive Committee member Zizi Kodwa said after the meeting here Sunday that there would be another meeting with the members of the ANC National Working Committee on Monday to discuss issues raised on Sunday. The national working committtee consists of the party President, Deputy President, National Chairperson, Secretary-General, Deputy Secretary General and Treasurer General plus any other National Executive Committte members they wish to appoint.
We’ll report tomorrow to the National Working Committee because we are meeting with the interim structures here in KZN. That report must still go to the National Executive Committee which will take a final decision whether should we proceed, and what impact, and what are the risks involved if we had to take that decision in terms of our readiness for national election,” added Kodwa.
“Because whatever we do, our eyes are on 2019. We don’t want anything that will take our eyes from the major project which is the national elections in 2019. We must remain the organization that gives hope to the people whatever challenges and preferences we have.”
