ANC 2017 Elective Conference

ANC North West chair says state capture judgment won't impact #ANC54 conference

The ANC's North West chairperson Supra Mahumapelo says there's nothing damning about the state capture judgment against President Jacob Zuma.

On Wednesday, the High Court dismissed the Zuma's application to review the Public Protector's report.

Judge Dustin Mlambo described the president' as reckless, unreasonable, deeply conflicted, ill-advised and grossly remiss, reports EWN's Clement Manyathela.

Supra Mahumapelo says it's a normal judgment and is not damning at all. He says it will not have any effect on the elective conference.

However, Mahumapelo says the judgment will have no bearing on the governing party's national elective conference this weekend.

Manyathela argues that the scathing court judgment will be used as a weapon by Zuma's detractors to sway votes away from his preferred ANC presidential candidate, Nkosazana Dlamini-Zuma.

The court ordered Zuma to personally pay the costs of his failed attempt to stop the release of State of Capture report and he now has 29 days to institute an inquiry.

Manyathela predicts that lobbying and jostling will intensify until ANC delegates mark their ballot papers for Zuma's successor.
