ANC to decide fate of Limpopo PEC

2013-03-15 13:02

Johannesburg - The ANC's national executive committee (NEC) is expected to decide on the fate of its Limpopo provincial executive committee during a four-day meeting starting on Friday in Irene, south of Pretoria.

After a meeting between the national working committee and the provincial executive committee in Polokwane last month, ANC secretary general Gwede Mantashe told reporters the provincial leadership was going to be investigated.

Provincial deployments would be probed, as would allegations that supporters of President Jacob Zuma were being purged.

There was dissatisfaction about the removal of some people, who were seen to back Zuma during lobbying before the ANC's elective conference in Mangaung in December.

ANCYL leadership

The NEC was also expected to discuss whether to retain the ANC Youth League's leadership, or place it under interim leadership.

The ANCYL has been led by its deputy president Ronald Lamola since its former president Julius Malema was expelled from the ANC last year.

In December, Malema sent the ANC conference a letter asking for his job back, but at the time Mantashe said it had been received too late, and that the programme had already been adopted.

The ANC and ANCYL have held two meetings this year to discuss weaknesses within the party's youth wing, including its lack of a permanent leader.

Delegates at the ANC conference resolved that the incoming NEC should meet the ANCYL to sort out issues between the two.

In his organisational report at the conference, Mantashe said the ANCYL was acting in a similar manner to forces which were against the party.

      By new leaders I hope you mean an election where the entire ANC get kicked out, we need a government not this bunch of corrupt thieves, this ANC is a political party without the political word, ie they know how to party with the tax payers money, I can imagine a four day meeting, all half asleep after all the Johnny Walker Blue consumed every night at the tax payers expense of course.

      Its a vicious cycle for Joe Public but it still baffles me to why we still pop champagne whenever a new broom is appointed cause to me they're nothing but the same bird feathers Lee!

      SA never been a good place. "ANC are now looters". Before ANC, the other race was benefiting at an expence of the other race.

    Why selective persecution when provinces like Eastern Cape have been milking public coffers dry since Mbeki era and nothing happens to them maybe just because they're the darlings of the present leadership for delivering the province to them in a silver platter in Mangaung?

    Sack the whole miserable lot, without a huge golden handshake, courtesy of taxpayers

  • Tim Elliott - 2013-03-15 14:07

    Just your average ANC day to day melodrama, nothing new.

  • NKAISANA - 2013-03-15 15:01

    Another faction is disbanding another factions that is a pure revenge for Limpopo from Zuma Camp.
