Johannesburg,30 June 2017 - The ANC's fifth national policy conference is kicking off in Nasrec, Soweto. The gathering is mandated by the party's constitution, and must be held at least six months before its five-yearly elective conference. ?
BONAJALA - Another group of ANC members in the North West is preparing to mount a court challenge against the party's regional conference.
This comes as disgruntled members in the Bojanala region won a second court interdict last night, preventing the conference from going ahead today.
The case relates to allegations that at least 40 branches were not constitutionally launched.
In August, unhappy ANC members approached the court, winning its first interdict.
On Friday, the court rescinded that order, allowing the conference to go ahead this weekend.
But last night’s interdict will stop the conference again, pending the finalisation of an urgent application set down for Friday.
