Court order bans 14 ANC members

2011-02-22 09:43

The ANC yesterday obtained a court order banning 14 of its Eastern Cape members from entering the party’s King William’s Town office, the Dispatch Online reported today.

The action was taken after members allegedly stormed the party’s Calata House offices last week and protested against the ANC’s provincial executive committee (PEC).

The group was calling on the party’s national leaders to disband the PEC.

The protest turned violent when provincial leaders were allegedly assaulted and property damaged.

Ten members were arrested on Friday, while the remaining four accused were arrested on Sunday.

They made a brief court appearance in the King William’s Town Magistrates Court and were released on R1 000 bail, the Dispatch Online reported.

The case was postponed to March 23 for further investigation.
