Zandile Gumede wins as she gets elected as regional Chairperson of the Anc in eThekwini

Information reaching Kossyderrickent has it that Zandile Gumede has been elected as chairperson of the ANC’s eThekwini region in a landslide victory for her unity and continuity slate. (Read More Here).

Gumede, who was elected in absentia as she is impacted by the ANC’s step-aside rule, received 210 votes while her opponent, eThekwini speaker Thabani Nyawose, received 181.

Gumede’s slate, which is backed by the ANC’s radical economic transformation faction, made a clean sweep of the top five posts in the region, one of the most influential in the country.

Thembo Ntuli, who stood as her deputy, beat Mthunzi Dlamini by 205 votes to 186 while Musa Nciki, the slate’s candidate for regional secretary, beat Bheki Ntuli by 217 votes to 174.

The deputy secretary’s position was won by Nkosenhle Madlala, with 211 votes, defeating Thanduxolo Sabelo, with 179 votes. Nomthandazo Shabalala becomes secretary with 205 votes over Ntokozo Sibiya, who got 186 votes.

However, the margins between the two factions means that eThekwini and the province — will not go into the national conference as a united block behind the radical economic transformation faction, which is yet to name a presidential candidate.

Elections for the rest of the eThekwini regional executive committee were set to take place later on Sunday night.

Gumede's slate took a clean sweep of all positions of the ANC's biggest region in the country:

Gumede, regional chairperson;
Thembo Ntuli, deputy chairperson;
Musa Nciki, regional secretary;
Nkosenhle Madlala, secretary; and
Zoe Shabalala, treasurer.
Gumede, a former eThekwini mayor, is standing trial in Durban's high court alongside 21 others accused of fraud, corruption and racketeering.

Gumede faces more than 2,000 charges related to a R320m solid waste project.
