This comes after governing party’s secretary-general filed court papers in the High Court in Johannesburg to set aside his suspension.


He believes the step-aside resolutions, which was agreed upon as the party’s national conference in 2017, is unlawful.

Roux says the party's step-aside resolution is not in line with the constitution of the country.

"His application that has merit, in my opinion, in that all laws and regulations in South Africa must be in accordance and must be inline with the constitution," says Roux.
