A delegation of 20 members of the African National Congress– National Working Committee is expected to be deployed to all four regions of the North West Wednesday morning, ahead of consultations with branches over the future of Premier Supra Mahumapelo.
The party will also discuss the authenticity of branches as there are allegations that the Provincial Executive Committee established some in contravention with the party’s constitution. The consultations are also aimed at quelling the violent protests that are currently spiraling in most of the province’s towns where residents are calling for Mahumapelo’s immediate resignation.
The party’s biggest region, Bojanala which comprises of Rustenburg, Brits and Moretele/Hammanskraal areas, has for long been at loggerheads with provincial chair, Supra Mahumapelo and his PEC. The region has also joined the chorus for Mahumapelo to be re-called.
Bojanala won a High Court case against the PEC, a week before the ANC’s December Elective Conference last year, for allegedly establishing parallel structures. ANC President Cyril Ramaphosa announced last week that there will be more consultations with branches to address both allegations of purging and rigging.
It is through the consultations that the future of Mahumapelo is highly expected to top the agenda. Only branch secretaries and chairperson will be allowed in all these consultative meetings.
