ANC 2017 Elective Conference

Crying foul about top six results won't help ANC - KZN ANCYL

The chairperson of the ANC's Youth League in KwaZulu-Natal (KZN) says delegates must accept the ANC Top Six results and move forward.

Kwazi Mshengu says ANC delegates must go home and work on healing divisions in the governing party.

This comes amid claims that the total number of ballots accounted for are 68 votes short of the number of voting delegates.

The 68 votes which are allegedly missing could potentially affect the outcome of the race between Senzo Mchunu and Ace Magashule for the position of ANC secretary general.

Mchunu lost the position to Magashule by 24 votes on Monday night.

Mshengu says that KZN ANC accepts the outcomes without reservation, despite supporting the Nkosazana Dlamini-Zuma's presidential campaign.

He says he's concerned that there is no KZN representation in the top six, even though KZN ANC is the biggest provincial delegation at the conference.

We respect the will of the delegates.

Kwazi Mshengu, ANCYL Kwa-Zulu Natal chairperson

We are quite concerned but that doesn't mean we have reservations about the results.

Kwazi Mshengu, ANCYL Kwa-Zulu Natal chairperson

It's not going to help the organisation to cry foul about outcomes of the positions. We must accept the outcomes.

Kwazi Mshengu, ANCYL Kwa-Zulu Natal chairperson

It shows that we must go home and heal our divisions.
