KWADUKUZA, DURBAN – The KwaDukuza region in KwaZulu-Natal has accused opposition parties of trying to run the country through the back door.

They are expecting around 5,000 people to join their mass demonstration in support of President Jacob Zuma.

The region says it has full confidence in President Zuma, both as leader of the African National Congress (ANC) and the country.

Regional secretary Thabani Mdlalose says Zuma will come out victorious after Tuesday’s secret ballot.

“The ANC took the decision to have confidence in its president and we believe that their conscience will talk then because when they joined, they agreed to adhere the party’s constitution.”

The northern KZN region says it expects thousands to join in on their mass demonstration today.
