NEWLY appointed Nelson Mandela Bay ANC regional chairman Chippa Ngcolomba yesterday admitted that his biggest challenge was to restore public confidence in the ruling party in the metro.
Ngcolomba, who is also deputy mayor, has been leading the party in an acting capacity since Nceba Faku quit in March. He was elected on Monday night at a specially convened regional general council at Nangoza Jebe Hall in New Brighton.
