ANC KZN conference to take place next week

ANC KZN conference to take place next week

The conference was postponed after a group of disgruntled members obtained a court interdict.


The ANC in KwaZulu-Natal as announced a new date for its provincial elective conference. 

Interim committee convener Mike Mabuyakhulu has confirmed the controversy-riddled conference has been rescheduled for next week Thursday to Saturday (19 - 21 July). 

It was meant to take place in Empangeni last month - but a disgruntled group from the Moses Mabhida Region brought proceedings to a grinding halt at the eleventh hour. 

They were granted an urgent interdict by the Pietermaritzburg High Court - preventing the conference from going ahead. 

They argued their branch general meetings had been marred by irregularities and gate-keeping.

Mabuyakhulu says the party has been in discussions with the members.

"Through the internal discussions between the ANC and those members of the African National Congress, we've been able to find an amicable resolution on the issues, hence now we are in a position to move forward and to set a new date for the provincial conference," says Mabuyakhulu.

The conference - which was initially held in 2015 - was declared unlawful by the same high court after a group of ANC members claimed proper process were not followed in some branch general meetings.
