The SACP in the North West has warned the ANC of setting a bad precedent by allowing its members to take the party to court.

This as some disgruntled party members have already threatened to take the national executive committee to court next week.

They are challenging the decision to disband the provincial task team which was led by Premier Job Mokgoro.

The national leadership also disbanded the Supra Mahumapelo led PEC last week and subsequently established a new provincial task team led by NEC member, Obed Bapela.

SACP provincial secretary, Madoda Sambatha says: “It is as if the only way to lead the ANC is to misbehave and taking the ANC to court. Our province is highly divided, it is highly anarchic and this anarchy is rewarded by the NEC.”

Acting ANC national spokesperson, Dakota Legoete has meanwhile urged party members to refrain from taking the party to court but instead prioritise winning the elections.

He says court actions should not be a priority, the priority should be to win the elections. He says that is a call made by the president and the national execute committee.

“We will advise the members who are taking the organisation to court to stop with immediate effect. Let them do their door to door and get people to vote for the ANC. People are not interested on court action, they want the ANC back in government,” says Legoete.
