JOHANNESBURG - The African National Congress (ANC) in KwaZulu-Natal says it can't confirm nor deny rumours that Premier Senzo Mchunu has been axed by the provincial party.

Reports emerged yesterday, citing anonymous sources, claiming that Mchunu has been requested to hand in his resignation by Monday morning.

The ANC says it will only comment on the rumours once it knows where the speculation started.

Spokesperson Ndumiseni Ntuli says, "Our difficulty is that we become the face of it either by confirming or denying it in terms of responding to that particular speculation."
