Disgruntled KwaZulu-Natal ANC members who won a court interdict to stop this weekend’s elective provincial conference could face disciplinary action.

A group of unhappy party members, mainly from the ANC’s Moses Mabhida region in Durban, went to the Pietermaritzburg High Court to halt the conference citing irregularities in the validation of delegates.

The ANC leadership says it will return to the court on Monday to seek an early date to put its side of the matter.

ANC provincial co-ordinator Sihle Zikalala says: “We would like to probe the conditions under which the ANC has been taken to court by these comrades and secondly if then they might be tantamount to breaching the discipline of the ANC.”

“Secondly, we would also look and see how we engage issues if there are genuine issues of concern. The general view by the delegates is that we must institute disciplinary action against these people who have taken the ANC to court.”
