ANC RGC meeting met with suspicion

2011-10-11 00:00

THE ANC Regional General Council (RGC) meeting on Saturday has been met with cynicism by ANC activists who staged a sit-in at the Moses Mabhida Regional offices in June.

The activists, who spoke to The Witness on condition they are not named, claim they were expecting the provincial executive committee (PEC) to inform branch members of the fate of the regional executive committee (REC) since its disbandment.

“We currently do not have an REC because their term of office has expired, however, the PEC has not been bold enough to deal with this matter,” said an ANC insider.

He said they do not trust that this was an RGC, which is constitutional, as no resolutions were taken and they are no longer interested in the PEC’s report.

“We are now waiting for a report from our national structures,” he said. The issue of membership to help the organisation grow has not been properly addressed, he said.

KZN ANC spokesperson Makhosi Khoza said this was a consultative routine meeting to update members on national and provincial developments, as well as developments in the ANC Youth League.

She said these meetings were held in all provincial regions for organisational growth and development purposes.

Regional secretary Super Zuma said he presented the report on branch membership.

“Most of our branches are in good standing, however, for those which are not there will a bi-election to prepare for the REC elective conference which will be held in November.”
