The African National Congress (ANC) Provincial Conferences in Gauteng and KwaZulu Natal are taking place on Friday, but they’ve been preceded by disgruntled party members still taking the provincial structures to court.
Political Analyst, Ralph Mathekga, says it appears that the Gauteng one will go ahead as planned.
There will be progress in relation to Gauteng. The one that is difficult is the KwaZulu Natal one, I mean even yesterday around 2 o' clock I saw reports about people going back to interdict it.— Ralph Mathekga, Political Analyst
And I think it is not just the interdict, it is also about once it is finished will they accept the result in KwaZulu Natal? Will they not contest the result in court and that is where the problem is.— Ralph Mathekga, Political Analyst
All this reflects a great deal of mistrust within the ANC and the collapse of internal processes to deal with matters within the ANC.— Ralph Mathekga, Political Analyst
That is why people always go to court because there is a belief that internal conflict resolution mechanism within the ANC are not fair and are being appropriated by a group of people and that is why people look outside for solutions.— Ralph Mathekga, Political Analyst
