Supra Mahumapelo Back In Court Over Fight With ANC

denel - Supra Mahumapelo Back In Court Over Fight With ANC

The court battle between the ANC and former North West chairperson Supra Mahumapelo will be heard on Wednesday by Judge Fayeeza Kathree-Setiloane.

Judgment in the case is expected to be handed down. Mahumapelo and four others are challenging the national ANC’s decision to disband his provincial executive committee.

They applied to the Gauteng High Court in Johannesburg to have the national executive committee’s (NEC) decision to disband his provincial executive committee (PEC) nullified.

Should the PEC be reinstated, its term of office will come to an end on February 13.

Since last year, Mahumapelo has argued that the decision was irrational and blamed it on people within the governing party who were seeking to purge those who did not support Cyril Ramaphosa’s bid to lead the party.

Mahumapelo also quit a provincial task team (PTT), meant to stabilise the province.

The five applicants’ legal representatives, which included advocates Dali Mpofu, SC, and Tembeka Ngcukaitobi told the court the immediate remedy they sought was for the PEC to be reinstated, even if its term of office ends next month.

The aggrieved ANC members also want the decisions taken by the PTT, since it was appointed last year, including its handling of the list processes which determine who serves in the National Assembly and provincial legislatures, overturned.
