ANC sued for R1.7m debt
Cape Town - The ANC in the Western Cape has been taken to court over R1.7m owed to the Cape Town International Convention Centre, the Sunday Times reported. According to the paper, the centre applied for a default judgment against the provincial ANC in the high court in Cape Town on Friday, six months after its provincial conference was held there.
Joey Pather, the centre's chief operating officer, said the centre was left with no choice after repeated requests for payment.
"From our perspective, we have processes in place. When a party deviates from this process, we have to take certain steps."
ANC provincial secretary Songezo Mjongile said the party was committed to resolving the problem.
"We are aware of the issue of debt with this particular creditor, and we are in the process of resolving it."
The ANC's Western Cape branch hosted its provincial conference in the centre's grand ballroom from February 11 to 13.
