ANC KZN 2015 election declared unlawful

ANC KZN 2015 election declared unlawful”

Editor's note: This live stream has ended.

The ANC says it will study the judgment handed down at the Pietermaritzburg High Court which ruled that the KwaZulu-Natal ANC's 8th elective conference was unlawful.

Supporters of Mchunu sang in jubilation outside the court after the ruling.

It also ordered the ANC to pay half of the costs of the applicants, these costs to include the costs of two counsel. "A party that is like a snake eating its own tail, divided and fractured and focused on internal battles and access to public money, rather than on delivery to the people of KZN", DA provincial leader Zwakele Mncwango said on Tuesday.

The case was brought before the court against the ANC's sitting provincial executive committee (PEC) by members from 43 so-called rebel branches that want the conference declared illegal and a rerun to be held.

The elective conference in question saw Zikalala beat former premier Senzo Mchunu to become the provincial chairperson.

Until recently Mr Zuma has kept a firm grip on power in KwaZulu-Natal, his home province, but if his allies fail to get reinstated to their leadership positions in the province, his influence could weaken ahead of the election to pick his successor as leader of the ANC.

KwaZulu-Natal ANC member Mdumiseni Ntuli said, "We are not convinced by the narrative which suggests that the outcome will make things worse in KZN...."

"We believe we have leadership in this country which is capable of ensuring that whatever comes out of the court processes does not create an impression of a crisis or disaster about to be happening", he said.
