JOHANNESBURG – The African Transformation Movement (ATM) is suing its former secretary-general, Buyisile Ngqulwana.
The ATM wants R22-million in damages.
The party claims it lost votes in the 2019 election after some serious allegations involving ANC Secretary-General Ace Magashule and former president Jacob Zuma.
The duo was accused of helping launch the party.
ATM leader Mzwanele Manyi says those allegations hurt the party’s performance at the polls.
“We have got many churches that support us, there is one church that has a constituency base which is in the millions, like seven million,” Manyi said.
“People in that church had committed, if people are committed in the church, you can’t go from six or seven million people to 100,000. Something is fundamentally wrong there.”
Manyi says that the amount they are suing for could rise.
