Free State ANC Provincial Deputy Chairperson Thabo Manyoni has called Wednesday’s court ruling that blocked a provincial elective conference this weekend a bitter sweet victory.
Manyoni didn’t attend Tuesday night’s Provincial General Council that announced Nkosazana Dlamini- Zuma as the Free State’s preferred candidate for party president.
Thabo Manyoni’s absence at the PGC raised eye brows but Premier Ace Magashule brushed it off saying they’d resolved their differences.
Now Manyoni says they reject the bogus 24 hour notice PGC held in Parys on Tuesday and attended by some of the delegates representing branches who were nullified by the appeals committee of the NEC and disassociate themselves with all the decisions taken there.
He says they believe the actions of the respondents are enough prove that they do not deserve to lead the ANC even for a moment.
Manyoni says it is painful and ironic that they celebrate justice executed by the courts in the internal matters of the ANC which the ANC has the ability to deal with effectively.
