ANC elects Duduzane Zuma as chairperson of Newlands East, Durban
Duduzane Zuma, the son of former president Jacob Zuma was elected as the ANC branch chairperson of Ward 11, Newlands East, and Durban.
Duduzane Zuma was elected during an ANC branch biennial general meeting at the Newlands East community hall.
Ward 11, which has about 42 000 voters, is located between the N2 and KwaMashu, about 10km north of the Durban city centre, and came under the control of the DA for the first time following this year’s municipal election after ANC support fell by 16 percentage points.
Duduzane believes that his role as branch chairperson is the first step to ultimately challenging Cyril Ramaphosa for the presidency of the governing party at the ANC’s leadership summit next year.
