Shilowa: Lekota wants dictatorship

2010-10-30 21:03

Johannesburg - Suspended Cope deputy president Mbhazima Shilowa has accused the party's leader Mosioua Lekota of trying to hijack the organisation and run it as a dictatorship, the SABC reported on Saturday.

Shilowa was addressing Cope's Eastern Cape elective congress in Butterworth earlier on Saturday.

The congress resolved to honour the party's national congress to be held in the Free State next month.

This was despite Lekota's threats to suspend any member of the party who did not adhere to a decision to postpone the national congress to December.

The broadcaster further reported that, amongst others, the Eastern Cape congress resolved to call for a vote of no confidence in the central working committee of the party.
