Lionel Adendorf files an urgent declaratory order against ANC Western Cape

Member of ANC's Provincial Executive Committee (PEC) in the Western Cape Lionel Adendorf says he has filed an urgent declaratory order with the Western Cape High Court to declare a recent meeting as invalid and illegitimate.

On Monday Adendorf told Kieno Kammies that he "could not be sacked" because he did not hold a political position and only worked for the party on a per-project basis.

He added that he was never asked to speak on behalf of the ANC so cannot understand how the structure claims he was fired.

Now he has decided to file a declaratory order after he received no response to two letters sent to the ANC regarding his situation.

We will most likely be going to court during the course of today where I am asking the court to declare a meeting at which certain decisions were taken as invalid and illegitimate.

I am approaching the courts as my only recourse to fight for what I think is right and just.

According to Adendorf, the Western Cape ANC backtracked on a decision made by its PWC to suspend its treasurer Maurencia Gillion.

He says this decision was made after the initial meeting in which he fully participated closed. He says he had 'the reasonable impression' that the meeting had ended.

To his surprise, he discovered the following day that some decisions were later made at a different meeting where he was absent.

My issue is not with any other decision taken, but during the PEC meeting that I attended my matters were not discussed. Unfortunately, for whoever benefited from a particular decision or on any other matter taken at that meeting must then be declared illegal.
