Durban – The Durban High Court on Saturday dismissed an urgent interdict which tried to prevent the eThekwini regional conference in KwaZulu-Natal from taking place, the ANC in KZN said.

Provincial secretary Super Zuma in a statement said on Saturday morning certain disgruntled “elements” attempted to interdict the eThekwini regional conference.  

“The ANC condemns in the strongest possible terms the display of un-ANC conduct and attempt to institutionalise factional behaviour by this grouping,” said Zuma.

He said the conduct was against ANC internal processes and policies to resolve ANC problems through courts.

“The ANC will act firmly against all rogue elements involve in bringing our movement into disrepute.”

He said, “The ANC leadership was not even served with court papers but only called to the Durban High Court after the applicants filed a special application to interdict the conference.

“The eThekwini conference which has delayed for long time is crucial for the stability of organisation and governance in eThekwini Municipality. It must and shall go ahead as planned,” said Zuma.

He said those in the organisation who hold opposing views should follow proper channels.

“We believe that internal matters of the organisation are best resolved internally and only those who fear that they may not muster enough institutional support within the movement then resort to third parties such as courts.

“A court interdict can be no substitute for internal democracy.”

Zuma said the court dismissed an urgent interdict with cost to the applicants.
