Mabuza’s statement comes after the ANC National Executive Committee disbanded the Provincial Executive Committee led by former Premier Supra Mahumapelo, but a court reversed the move which the National Executive Committee (NEC) has since appealed.
The NEC disbanded the Provincial Task Team led by current Premier Job Mokgoro and has instead established a new team lead by Obed Bapela to prepare for the elections.
Mabuza, who is on a campaign trail in Taung, says he believes the ANC still has a chance to get a decisive win in the North West.
“No, no, you can see the people love the ANC. We are very strong. People love the ANC. It was just our mistake; our division within the ANC, but with the people, they love the ANC and we are going to win. If we can correct our mistakes we are fine; home and dry.”
