The African National Congress (ANC) Provincial Executive Committee (PEC) in the North West, has distanced itself from members of the ANC, including Chairperson Supra Mahumapelo, on attending the fraud and corruption case of former President Jacob Zuma tomorrow.

This is as some members of the party have heeded an earlier call by Mahumapelo that they must all go and support Zuma in Durban. Reports from members of the ANC attending the case, are that buses ferrying them from the North West are expected to leave this afternoon.

North West ANC Spokesperson, Gerald Modise says the PEC has collectively resolved not to attend the court case.

“We are not going to attend… we have by-elections, and we have we have elections programmes that still needs us to attend to throughout the province – so it is a definite no. We are not going to attend in Durban. Individual members of the ANC will attend. All those who want to attend, they can attend… I can say, Chairperson is an individual member of the ANC, but as far as the collective, we are not going there,” Modise says.
