The newly elected ANC Musa Dladla regional leaders will go on a fact-finding mission to ascertain what went wrong in the 2021 local government elections which saw a huge chunk of the electorate desert the ANC.
On Sunday, regional chairperson Musa Cebekhulu said the immediate task of his leadership collective is to rebuild confidence in the ANC and work harder to regain lost ground.
The ANC lost control of the district municipality to the IFP in the 2021 local government elections.
“It is also required to scrutinise and come up with tangible solutions on how to rectify our mistakes.
“We noted with keen interest the analysis of the voting patterns and also noticed the social gap between the ANC and the masses,” said Cebekhulu.
The region was not the only one affected by the rise of the IFP in KwaZulu-Natal, however Cebekhulu said losing control of governance in King Cetshwayo district was “disastrous” for the ANC.
