JOHANNESBURG – KwaZulu-Natal Premier Senzo Mchunu has reportedly resigned following a weekend of speculation about his fate.
According to news channel, eNCA, Mchunu was forced to resign over his defiance of the African National Congress’ (ANC) leadership on governance issues.
Reports surfaced over the weekend that Mchunu had been ordered by provincial leadership to hand in his resignation this week.
Tensions within the provincial party became visible when Mchunu lost his position as chairperson to Sihle Zikalala during a provincial elective conference last year.
Now it’s also alleged his resignation may be followed by a Cabinet reshuffle in KZN.
