Mahumapelo and disgruntled N West ANC dispute NEC decision to disband PEC

The disgruntled North West ANC members together with Former North West Premier Supra Mahumapelo want the national executive committee's decision (NEC) to disband the party's provincial leadership to be overturned.

They are claiming that the decision was invalid and irrational.

Mahumapelo says they have reports that prove the legitimacy of the branches which was approved by former secretary general Gwede Mantashe.

These branches that they are saying are dysfunctional were audited and proved to be in good standing by former Secretary general Gwede Mantashe. The branches were approved to attend and participate in the national conference of the ANC and we've got an audit report to demonstrate that.

You can't argue after the national conference that the same branches that you allowed to participate and elected, suddenly after six months they are non-functional.

Mahumapelo says the NEC has the right to make that decision but the processes and the reasons it gave for disbanding the PEC are problematic.

He says there were meetings that were held before and after the conference where people were plotting to dissolve the NW PEC and they are using the NEC to rubber-stamp a decision of a particular group.

If we are clear and have demonstrable evidence at our disposal that the NEC is not rubber stamping an intention of a group that feels triumphant after Nasrec we would have accepted this decision.
