North West ANC PEC disbanded to create political stability

ANC Spokesperson Pule Mabe says the decision to disband the Northwest Provincial Executive Committee was led by political instability in the province.

This means that Supra Mahumapelo is out as the provincial chairperson together with other party leaders in the province.

This was a political process that is meant to return political calmness in the province and get all our forces energised towards making sure that we can unite Bokone Bophirima.

Mabe says Mahumapelo has been emphasising the need to deepen political education to make sure that all members understand the processes of the ANC and subject themselves to the discipline of the movement.

We hope that Supra Mahumapelo, as any other deployee of the ANC, will be working together with National Executive Committee deployees to make sure that we can consolidate the unity we need because Mahumapelo is part of the ANC.

Provincial Secretary of the SACP in the North West, Madoda Sambatha says the disbandment of the PEC shows the extent to which the ANC is deeply in crisis in the North West.

This is not the first time that the PEC is dissolved in this province. People who were appointed to lead the PEC became too factional.

As the PEC is dissolved now, the ANC must look into the calibre of individuals it deploys at PEC so that the ANC can finally be united in our province.

Political analyst, Prof Tinyiko Maluleke says it seems the ANC has done its cost analysis and figured that the cost of keeping the current PEC will be too expensive and it will be cheaper to disband it.

He says this is a move to minimise factionalism in the province to ensure that the province is ready for the 2019 election

Clearly, elections 2019 is the big picture and a big motivating factor for what they've done. They feel that under these circumstances, where you have Job Mokgoro as the premiere, and surrounding him is the PEC that has been at odds with him and in many ways at odds with the NEC, they thought that would be too costly to go ahead with.
