RESIGNATION OF MAKHOSI KHOZA A BLOW FOR KWAZULU-NATAL

SIZWE MCHUNU, MPP

LEADER OF THE DA IN THE KZN LEGISLATURE/DA KZN PROVINCIAL LEADER

THE resignation of Makhosi Khoza, former KwaZulu-Natal Scopa Chair and current ANC Chief Whip in the provincial legislature, is a blow to the province.

As a rising star within the ANC, Ms Khoza proved an outstanding SCOPA chairperson, who made a very definite contribution towards strict oversight controls within the province. Despite her positive impact, she was removed from this. The DA views the move as politically motivated and regards the redeployment of Ms Khoza to ANC Chief Whip in the Legislature – a role far removed from the public eye – as a deliberate attempt to place her in a media backwater. Ms Khoza’s personal ambitions were further thwarted when she was forced to withdraw her application for the position of Ethwekwini Municipal Manager following death threats.

The DA believes that Ms Khoza has been used as political pawn by the province’s leadership. It is intolerable that a politician of this calibre should be lost to KwaZulu-Natal.
