African National Congress (ANC) Vice-chairman of KwaZulu Natal and Mike Mabuyakul have decided to resign From his position in line with the party’s resolution on those facing serious criminal accusations.
Mabuyakhulu faces fraud and corruption charges related to the Jazz Music Festival while he was still an economic development MEC.
Mabuyakul became the first ANC leader in KwaZulu Natal and voluntarily left his position. In a letter sent to state leaders, Mabuyakur believes that a person is not guilty until otherwise proved by the court, but states that he will respect ANC’s decision.

He returned to his position within the party last year after being approved by the party’s state integrity committee. He was elected Vice-Chair in 2018, but refused to be placed in the Legislature because of the allegations he faces. He says he wanted a quick trial to reveal his name.
Meanwhile, Zandile Gumede, a former mayor of eThekwini, who is now a member of the state legislature, has yet to say whether she will resign.
The ANC NWC will meet on the party’s Step Aside resolution.
