The Azanian People’s Organisation (Azapo) President, Nelvis Qekema says the party will support the Pan Africanist Congress of Azania (PAC) in resolving its factionalist disputes.

Two weeks ago, the two left-wing parties signed a declaration of cooperation agreement. This is a show of unity, with the aim to contest future elections together and to champion the needs of the people on the ground.

They believe this will accelerate their efforts to be more visible to the electorate. However, there are fears that the disunity within the party could hamper these efforts.

The Supreme Court of Appeal is expected to hear the matter of ousted PAC President Narius Moloto on Monday morning.

Moloto says the High Court’s decision to declare Mzwanele Nyhontso as the party’s lawful leader was flawed. Qekema says this is not a matter unique to the PAC..

“Those issues you are likely to find with any political organisation that is out there. We don’t think that the PAC is unique in this regard. It is our wish that the PAC resolves its problems.We will always engage with the PAC,” says Moloto .

PAC and AZAPO join forces through a Co-operation Agreement
