Mkhize’s sup­port base is in KwaZu­luNatal – the ANC’s big­gest province in terms of mem­ber­ship.

How­ever, his sup­port­ers have lost their dom­i­nance in the province to two op­pos­ing group­ings linked to ANC chair­per­son Senzo Mchunu and pro­vin­cial sec­re­tary Sihle Zikalala, re­spec­tively.

Mkhize’s chances would im­prove if his sup­port­ers joined forces with one of the two dom­i­nant groups.

His po­si­tion as trea­surer-gen­eral in the ANC top six of the ANC pro­vides him with ac­cess to crit­i­cal in­for­ma­tion about the run­ning of the party.

He re­mains a dark horse should the lead con­tenders fall out of favour.
