KZN PROGRESSIVE PROFESSIONALS FORUM EXPRESSES HIGH HOPES OF KZN PREMIER ELECT
KwaZulu-Natal chapter of the Progressive Professionals Forum (KZN-PPF) congratulates the KwaZulu-Natal Premier elect Cde Sihle Zikalala.
Acting Chairperson of PPF KZN Dr Sandile Tshabalala says, the National Executive Committee (NEC) of the ANC did not make a mistake by nominating Cde Zikalala to occupy the first office in the KwaZulu-Natal Provincial Government. “As professionals in KwaZulu-Natal we are elated over the nomination of Cde Sihle Zikalala for the position of Premier. We congratulate him and have full confidence in him to grow the province of KwaZulu-Natal and change the lives of its people for the better. We have seen him rise in politics from a young age and he has proven himself to be one of sound mind and trustworthy leadership over the years” says Dr Tshabalala.
Tshabalala further stated that KZN PPF regards Zikalala as a beacon of hope for youth in KwaZulu-Natal, especially the young professionals and young entrepreneurs. “Zikalala, being an academic professional himself knows the plight of the professionals in different work streams and that of the unemployed professionals who are in the job market. He carries hopes and responses for the challenges cited by the people during the campaign towards elections. He thoroughly understands the fight that the country is facing and the triple challenge of poverty, unemployment and inequality. He is at the helm of the ANC in KwaZulu-Natal and therefore would be able to drive the Radical Economic Transformation agenda as per the Nasrec resolution of the ANC,” Dr Tshabalala says.
We as Professionals in KZN are humbled by the leadership of the outgoing Premier Hon. Willies Mchunu and his collective and wish him all the best in his future endeavours.
