Mantashe disappointed in those pushing rumours of his possible removal

Mantashe disappointed in those pushing rumours of his possible removal”

Governing African National Congress (ANC) says it will not intervene to end the crisis unfolding in neighbouring Zimbabwe, amid fears that the military could overthrow 93-year-old President Robert Mugabe, the world's oldest ruler.

The African National Congress is confident of a successful 54th National Conference to be held from the 16th to the 20th December 2017. This is to ensure that we do not tamper with the quorum of the meeting and the allocated delegation of the branch.

Disgruntled party members in the Northern Cape have taken the ANC to court asking for the May 8th provincial congress in Colesburg to be reviewed and set aside. While nearly 70% of the branches have concluded nominations, critical provinces, such as KwaZulu-Natal, the Eastern Cape and the North West, are lagging behind.

While the appeal is being heard against the conference, Mantashe said the Provincial Executive Committee elected a few months ago - led by Mabuyane - was still in place.

It's believed that there were differences at the meeting over reports by NEC deployees to the Eastern Cape and the provincial executive committee on the fate of the PEC. "That's the point we are making", he said".

Mantashe has been criticised for once saying that current Deputy President Cyril Ramaphosa should become president and that Dlamini-Zuma should be his deputy.

Mantashe said 5,240 delegates will attend the conference with 4,731 from branches and 509 made up of ANC leagues, NEC and ex-officio members.

After deliberation on the report, the NEC resolved to affirm the decision of the PEC that the Region must convene a Regional Conference within six (6) months and also uphold decision of the PEC to withdraw the powers of the REC in respect of membership management.

Mantashe said the violent conduct displayed at that conference was against the party's values and culture.

A task team of seven members - four from the national executive committee (NEC) and three "technical" staffers - were assigned to the province to deal with the appeal. "The four NEC members are comrades Sbu Ndebele (chairperson), Rejoice Mabudafhasi, Joyce Moloi-Moropa and Sdumo Dlamini...there is no other person but these four names only".
