Mathews Phosa: 'Unity' is a mythical creation of David Mabuza

Two hundred and twenty three branches in Mpumalanga province voted for unity during its Provincial General Council.

Dr Mathews Phosa, ANC Presidential candidate says the outcome of the Mpumalanga PGC is illegal and should be nullified. He says they have videos of people saying to delegates they must vote for 'unity'.

Who is 'unity'? asks Phosa.

If you look at the guidelines of the ANC on how we run the PGCs, no one is allowed to influence members in voting

Dr Mathews Phosa, Former ANC Treasurer-General

Who is unity? We don't have the membership of 'unity', we don't know the branch of 'unity', the address and ID of 'unity' - it's a mythical creation of David Mabuza.

Phosa says they will be filing papers between Tuesday and Wednesday for the court to set aside aside the PGMs and the PGC

The ANC system needs to be cleaned up. We have been fighting corruption in this campaign and in the ANC so the ANC conference cannot have delegates who are ghosts, people who go there they must be properly elected delegates.
