ANC in KZN confident Cabinet reshuffle won’t cause instability
Super Zuma says the reshuffle is a balanced move that will help with service delivery in the province.
JOHANNESBURG - The African National Congress (ANC) in KwaZulu-Natal says it doesn't expect today's reshuffle to lead to any political instability in the provincial party or in the province.
This morning, the party confirmed that four MECs are being removed from the provincial Cabinet after former premier Senzo Mchunu was ordered to resign from that post last month.

The removal of Mchunu as premier led to claims that Sihle Zikalala was playing factional battles in his role as KZN ANC chairman.
But the party's provincial secretary Super Zuma says claims that Mchunu's supporters could see this reshuffle as another attack on them don't make sense.
"Now trying to remove comrade Senzo Mchunu from the organisation as if he has his own grouping. Senzo Mchunu is a member of the ANC and a loyal member of the ANC and doesn't have his own group."
He says the reshuffle is a balanced move that will help with service delivery in the province.
