2008-10-12 23:51

Johannesburg - Disgruntled members of the PAC, led by former party secretary Thami Plaaitjie, have left the organisation to form a breakaway party, the SABC reported on Sunday.

The group has said that the current PAC, under the leadership of Letlapa Mphahlele is not what they can identify with.

Former PAC president Clarence Makwetu is also part of the splinter group.

The group said that it plans to convene a conference in December to form a new party that they call the real PAC.

They have also accused Mphahlele of abandoning the ideologies of the party's founding leader, Robert Sobukwe.
