'Supra Mahumapelo seems undeterred by efforts to unseat him'

Senior African National Congress (ANC) members are meeting in the North West on Wednesday amid increased calls for Premier Supra Mahumapelo to resign.

The meeting follows the postponement of motion of no confidence brought by the EFF against the premier.

The ANC’s National Working Committee is visiting the province to address apparent rifts in the provincial structures over its leadership and to address some of its members in the provincial legislature who supported the EFF-sponsored motion.

We met with him earlier before the meeting began. He seemed quite undeterred by all this talk to have him unseated.

All of this is said to have emanated from growing allegations against Premier Supra Mahumapelo. The most recent allegation is that his son got a bursary to the tune of R 1.1 million to study at a prestigious aviation school.

Meanwhile residents in Mahikeng are protesting over service delivery which they say has deteriorated under the premier.

Protests are said to be around the leadership of the province.

Some of the things that have been said by people on the ground who are protesting is that they also want bursaries to further their studies.

There are other issues in the province that have caught the attention of senior members in the party and that is, for example, the ongoing strike in the departments of health and social development which have brought services to a halt. There are no medicines in clinics and people are reporting deaths of loved ones as a result.
