Gumede supporters 'confident' she'll be re-elected as eThekwini ANC chair
Zandile Gumede, who is facing criminal charges, is set to face a challenge from Thabani Nyawose an ANC branch leader in eThekwini.
The ANC is set to hold an elective conference later this year.
Gumede, who is facing criminal charges, is set to face a challenge from Thabani Nyawose, an ANC branch leader in eThekwini.
But those who support Gumede claimed Nyawose's chances of taking over the ANC's biggest region in the country were slim.
Gumede's spokesperson Mzomuhle Dube said: “How much support does Thabani Nyawose command throughout the ANC branches? When people have parties somewhere, it’s very likely that they elevate themselves into leadership.”
Gumede was removed by the ANC as the regional chairperson in June.
Dube said the campaign to reinstate her at the upcoming elective conference was well under way.
The party’s provincial spokesperson Ricardo Mthembu said the party would announce official dates for the conference this week.
