Political Analyst, Lukhona Mnguni speaks to CapeTalk's John Maytham about the upcoming ANC elective Conference to be held in Nasrec, Johannesburg, this weekend.
With just a few days before the conference, some of the ANC led provinces are yet to resolve their conflicts and are currently locked in litigation battles.
On the other hand, the ANC in KwaZulu-Natal is also seeking to appeal a ruling over the legitimacy of its provincial conference.
And in the Free State, a dispute over whether about 24 branch meetings were properly constituted is expected to be heard in the Bloemfontein High Court this week.
In KwaZulu-Natal the issue is around the Provincial Executive committee. It doesn't affect the branches and the work that has been done by the PEC. Even if in the eve of the conference the court says it is not willing to grant the leave to appeal, still it won't affect the delegation.— Lukhona Mnguni, Political analyst
The most interesting is the one in the Free State because the application put before the courts seek to say we want to interdict the entire delegation of the Free State from going to conference. It's a bizarre move... they are now claiming about 100 branches that have not properly been done.— Lukhona Mnguni, Political analyst
It does seem as if the court's time is being taken advantage of or borderline abuse... All of this points to the disintegration of internal capacity of the ANC to deal with its own problems.— Lukhona Mnguni, Political analyst
