Mpumalanga Party... in Limpopo

2011-04-28 13:41
Johannesburg - The newly formed Mpumalanga Party in Limpopo has promised the disgruntled communities of Moutse and KwaDlawulale that they will re-incorporated into Mpumalanga should the party win in upcoming local government elections.

SABC radio news reported that party chairperson William Ramphisa had told hundreds of people at its manifesto launch in Elandsdoorn that it would be "strongly contesting" the election against the ANC.

Ramphisa said the party wanted the communities to become part of the towns of Groblersdal and Marble Hall in Mpumalanga.

According to The New Age newspaper, the party was formed by Seun Mogotji, one of the leaders of the Moutse Demarcation Forum (MDF) in Limpopo.

Registered party

Mogotji's goal is to help reincorporate the area into Mpumalanga.

"This party with five executive committee members and huge potential rank and file is just a vehicle to take the people back to Mpumalanga," the newspaper quoted him as saying.

"The party is registered and we are going to contest the municipal elections in Elias Motsoaledi, Groblersdal, Ephraim Mogale and Marble Hall unless the ANC makes a move," said Mogotji.

Mogoti said he had resigned from the ANC but remained a staunch member of the SACP.

ANC accused of campaign disruptions

"If the ANC cannot liberate people by respecting their democratic views, come local government elections, we will contest them as the Mpumalanga Party," he said.

On April 1, Mogotji accused the ANC of disrupting his party's municipal election campaign.

He alleged that ANC members stormed into the party's election gathering in Moteti, Dennilton, on Saturday and disrupted proceedings.

"They disrupted our meeting by singing and threatening some of our members with violence, death and damage to their properties," he said.
