DENOSA KZN concludes its Provincial Congress, elects POBs for the term

DENOSA in KwaZulu-Natal concluded its provincial congress on 21 August at Prince Mshiyeni Hospital in Umlazi, Durban, by electing the provincial office bearers (POBs) for the term.

This was the reconvening of the congress after it could not conclude all its business in the previous two attempts in January and March this year.
Sibonelo Cele was returned to office as provincial chairperson uncontested, while Zanele Gumede was elected as Deputy Provincial Chairperson. Sindiswa Nyawo was elected as the provincial treasurer. 
This makes up the 50/50 of the gender balance among the POBs as two they comprise of two males and two females.
Convener of the National Task Team and 2nd Deputy President, Thandeka Msibi, called for unity in the province. She said manpower without unity is not effective for such power is not harmonized. 
She said the province as well as the whole organisation nationally needed to unite as more challenges are placed on the organization's shoulders. She said the BRICS Nursing Forum wanted South Africa (DENOSA) to host its conference next year. 
Msibi commended the organisation in the province for its resilience despite the challenges. She said DENOSA continued to advocate for nurses in the province, a view that was echoed by Provincial Secretary, Mandla Shabangu, when he gave his overview of the province.
Shabangu said the organisation has managed to grow despite the challenges of absence of leadership. But he said a lot still needed to he done.
The congress was attended by more than 120 delegates representing the regions.
