Durban - Infighting and factional battles continue to haunt the Pan Africanist Congress (PAC) founded by struggle stalwart Robert Mangaliso Sobukwe, following the latest disputed “re-election” of Narius Moloto as party president in Polokwane over the weekend.
The bickering between two PAC factions continued throughout the weekend after the elective conference organised by the Moloto’s faction. Another faction led by Apa Pooe - PAC secretary general had disputed the outcome of the Polokwane conference saying it was “illegal and unlawful”.
Pooe told the media that the North Gauteng High Court in Pretoria issued an order on Friday instructing Moloto to refrain from holding an elective conference under the banner of the PAC.
He said Moloto and his supporters ignored the court order and “decided to hold a get-together in which they elected themselves into positions.”
Moloto was placed on suspension last month following his “unilateral” decision to suspend the PAC constitution and placed his party under administration. Pooe and his supporters approached the High Court in Pretoria which overturned Moloto’s decision.
