Cope axes 'ill-disciplined' leaders

2012-07-27 20:05

Johannesburg - The Congress of the People (Cope) in Limpopo has expelled some of its top provincial and regional heads, the party said on Friday.

Cope provincial spokesperson Thejeng Motlatjo said in a statement that the branch expelled four members because of ill-discipline and for bringing the party into disrepute.

Solomon Mokhatshoa, who was the acting provincial chairman for the party as well as an MPL, was one of those axed.

Deputy chairman and MPL Mabule Philip Motubatse, provincial secretary Mary Maphanga and Stella Dinyake, the regional secretary of the Capricorn region, have also been fired.

It is alleged the group was given a chance to appeal their expulsions but chose not do so.

"They have been stumbling blocks for the growth and progress of the organisation in parliament and government in many ways," said Motlatjo.

"We wish all of them good luck in their political life and hope that they find a political home to represent [the] many South Africans who still believe in their abilities."

    Such a shame, so many people wasted their vote by making their cross next to these bunch of tools. Oh well, another party who unable to COPE with the pressures of public service

    If the two top leaders are ill-disciplined.. how do you expect the rest of the party to Cope?

    Cope, taking the hope of millions and squashing it with the dreams of few

    The problem is with the dictator called Mosiou "Terrible Leader" Lekota.He was supposed to have left Mbhazima Shilowa in the leadership now what have emerged as the real freight to corrupt ANC has faded away.
