Johannesburg - The ANC in the Eastern Cape on Tuesday bemoaned reports that its secretary Oscar Mabuyane had declared that some parallel structures in the province were legitimate.

"The organisation that is functioning normally cannot derive joy when there are parallel structures in the same ward operated by the two branch executive committees," spokesperson Pindile Miza said in a statement.

"It is our political commitment to collapse parallel structures to join the mainstream legitimate branches of the ANC, and membership will be integrated under one umbrella body and supervisory structure of the branch executive committee."

Parallel structures were informal African National Congress branches operating in regions that already had formal, recognised branches.

The Times reported that Mabuyane wrote to the OR Tambo region, claiming the parallel structures some branches had set up were legitimate.

Mabuyane's letter contradicted provincial ANC spokesperson Mlibo Qoboshiyane's public statement that all parallel structures would be "disestablished" (sic), according to the report.

The ANC's national auditing team found that about 25 branches in the Eastern Cape were parallel structures. The majority of the affected branches were in the King Sabata Dalindyebo area, The Times reported.

Miza said Mabuyane's letter clarified which were the formally recognised branches in particular wards.

"The secretary's correspondence is crystal clear, organisationally correct and politically assisting to demystify the distortion," he said.
