The Pan Africanist Congress has a new President.

Narius Moloto has been appointed as the PAC new president with immediate effect.

Moloto’s appointment follows the expulsion of its former President, Luthando Mbinda, who was elected in 2015. Luthando is not the first President to be expelled before finishing his term.

In 2013 the party expelled Letlapa Mphahlele for putting the party into disrepute. He was accused for bringing the party into disrepute. Now the party’s former general secretary has been elevated to the leadership position

In recent years the PAC has been struggling to find its former glory.

It has performed dismally at the polls.

The party currently has only one seat in Parliament.

In its attempt to change its fortune it appointed Luthando Mbinda in 2015.

Barely two years in office and he has been shown the door together with his deputy Jones Tolo

It’s believed Moloto will help turn-around the party.

With just 2019 around the corner it remains to be seen, if the new leadership will survive a court battle ahead of national elections.
