Nceba Faku has resigned as ANC chairperson in the Nelson Mandela Bay Metro(SABC)
African National Congress (ANC) chairperson in the Nelson Mandela Bay Metro, Nceba Faku, has resigned from his position.
Faku was former metro executive mayor but since taking on the position of ANC chairperson has been at loggerheads with executive mayor Zanoxolo Wayile.
Faku was re-elected chairman of the ANC during a controversial conference at St Albans near Port Elizabeth in April.
Since then, Faku has been at odds with current executive mayor Zanoxolo Wayile, even vowing to oust Wayile in the name of the party.
In one instance, bolt cutters had to be used at the party's headquarters in Florence Matomela House to free Wayile, who was believed to be kidnapped, in an attempt to force him to resign.
ANC provincial secretary Oscar Mabuyane says Faku has now resigned.
“We have received a notice of resignation from him and that resignation is for the office of chairperson of the region not as a member of the ANC,” says Mabuyane.
The ANC's top six is expected to arrive at James Calata House in King William's Town tomorrow to discuss the fate of Wayile.
