Jabulani Khumalo launches urgent High Court bid to be reinstated

JOHANNESBURG - Expelled Umkhonto WeSizwe founder Jabulani Khumalo is not going down without a fight.

He’s filed an urgent High Court bid to stop Parliament and the MK Party from removing him from the party list.

On Wednesday, the Electoral Court dismissed his application to be reinstated as party leader.

He alleged that Duduzile Zuma-Sambudla forged his signature on a letter to the IEC.

That communication effectively replaced him with her father and former President Jacob Zuma as party leader.

His removal means Khumalo will not be in Parliament when it convenes on Friday to elect a President.

It's unclear if the MK Party will be attending after they said they would boycott the sitting.

Parliament has already cancelled their travel and accommodation arrangements.
