The 254 branches of the African National Congress (ANC) in the North West are to investigate and report those who disrupt the party’s activities. This was one of the resolutions made at the party’s Provincial General Council meeting.
The meeting was marred by prote s from disgruntled members who were locked out of the venue. The meeting which was attended by more than 500 ANC delegates deliberated on numerous issues, including the upcoming local government elections.
Provincial Secretary, Dakota Legoete, has condemned violence from disruptive members. “We would like to condemn acts of violence in an attempt to disrupt the Constitutional organised Provincial General Council of the ANC.
“According to the Constitution of the ANC, only the chairperson and the secretaries are permitted to take part in the general council and those who planned disruptions were failing out on their constituted list of delegates. We are happy that the police were on time to restore calm and the situation of those who do not want to see order prevailing in the ANC,” Legoete explained.
Provincial Chairperson, Supra Mahumapelo, squashed rumours of the possible dissolution of the Provincial Executive Council and his redeployment.
Mahumapelo denied reports of a rift between the PEC and the National Executive Council.
The meeting pledged support for President Jacob Zuma and says it will oppose any efforts to remove him.
