The Inkatha Freedom Party (IFP) says that while newly elected KwaZulu-Natal Prime Minister Nomusa Dube-Ncube is competent, she will not be able to implement major decisions.

The IFP says it is compromised by a lack of support from its own party.

Dube-Ncube was sworn in on Wednesday during a special sitting of the provincial legislature in Mooi River.

She defeated Democratic Alliance (DA) Mabato Thembe to replace Sile Zikalala, who resigned last week.

IFP leader Velenkasini Hlabisa says Dube-Ncube’s own party does not fully support her.

Hlabisa says: “Unfortunately for her, she will not be acting as prime minister because she is a compromised prime minister because you know, two weeks ago, Dube-Ncube was rejected by the ANC conference in the province. They even refused to put up a barrier for her to apply for the post of chairman.”

SAfm First Take’s Elvis Preslin spoke to Glabis:

Good working relationship

On Wednesday, Dube-Ncube assured members of the provincial legislature that she would maintain a good working relationship with all political parties.

She spoke after taking the oath.

Dube-Ncube used the opportunity to pay tribute to her predecessor, Sila Zikalale.

“I will maintain a good working relationship with all of you and we will hold regular briefings as necessary. To my predecessors, in particular Hon Zikalala, I want to thank you for all the good work you have done for the people of KwaZulu-Natal as Prime Minister and the great spirit of camaraderie between colleagues and political parties, and we will uphold this as women . We don’t take for granted the fact that we made history here today.”
