Lekota still Cope president

The conference which passed the vote of no confidence in Lekota was

illegal, Judge Rami Mathopo ruled.

Cope spokesman Phillip Dexter and Lekota should have been allowed

to present their side before the vote, Mathopo said, calling it a “flagrant

disregard for the rules of natural justice“.

The judge ordered that Dexter and Lekota be allowed to retain their

positions, interdicted the faction supporting party deputy president Mbhazima

Shilowa from interfering with Cope MPs in Parliament and ordered them to pay

Lekota’s legal costs.
