Khoza still on de­funct KZN ANC’s hit list

The Times (South Africa) - - News - — Busi­nessLIVE

● The ANC in KwaZulu-Na­tal will con­tinue with its dis­ci­plinary pro­cesses against out­spo­ken MP Makhosi Khoza de­spite this week’s judg­ment that the elec­tion of the rul­ing party’s lead­ers in the prov­ince was un­law­ful‚ she said yes­ter­day.

“They said they are go­ing ahead with charg­ing me‚ ir­re­spec­tive of the fact that they are il­le­git­i­mate.

“On Sun­day they are ex­pect­ing me to ap­pear. But I am still con­sult­ing my lawyer‚” Khoza told jour­nal­ists on the side­lines of the Met­als and En­gi­neer­ing Ind­aba, in Jo­han­nes­burg yes­ter­day.

KwaZulu-Na­tal was sent into a lead­er­ship cri­sis this week when the Pi­eter­mar­itzburg High Court de­clared the re­sults of the ANC’s 2015 provin­cial elec­tive con­fer­ence, at which Sihle Zikalala was elected provin­cial chair­man‚ in­valid.

The ANC in KwaZulu-Na­tal charged Khoza for bring­ing the party into dis­re­pute and for ill-dis­ci­pline af­ter she made nu­mer­ous calls for Pres­i­dent Ja­cob Zuma to quit.

Her dis­ci­plinary hear­ing was due to start last Sun­day but was post­poned to this Sun­day when her lawyer asked for more time to pre­pare.
