The ANC conference in Kwazulu-Natal that was previously halted, will finally take place starting from Thursday to Sunday.
The party was due to elect its provincial leaders but was barred from doing so by the Pietermaritzburg High Court because of infighting between those supporting President Cyril Ramaphosa and former president Jacob Zuma.
Mike Mabuyakhulu, ANC KwaZulu-Natal Interim Committee Convenor thanked the ANC’s national disputes resolution committee led by Jessie Duarte for intervening between the provincial leadership and the branches.
He says the intervention has helped in having open dialogues with the branches, paving the way for the conference to finally take place.
They helped us a great in ensuring that members who had issues or complaints were listened to and those matters were dealt with.— Mike Mabuyakhulu, ANC KwaZulu-Natal Interim Committee Convenor
As a result we were able to reach a consensus between us and our members which has paved a way for us to have a conference from tomorrow till the 22nd.— Mike Mabuyakhulu, ANC KwaZulu-Natal Interim Committee Convenor
I think as a result of that we were able to ensure that the conference will move smoothly and that there are no hiccups.— Mike Mabuyakhulu, ANC KwaZulu-Natal Interim Committee Convenor
