Johannesburg - The courts are unable to fix the failing and broken African National Congress (ANC) bus, the Democratic Alliance (DA) in the North West said on Wednesday.
The DA was reacting to the High Court in Johannesburg's judgment in the case of former Premier Supra Mahumapelo, contesting the national ANC's decision to disband the ANC’s North West Provincial Executive Committee (PEC).
The court ruled the disbanded PEC must be reinstated based on procedural irregularities.
“It goes to show that even in internal matters, the failing ANC cannot be trusted to deal with serious matters efficiently, and we know from our lived experiences in the North West, that the failing ANC cannot be trusted to govern in the interest of the people,” DA North West Premier Candidate, Joe McGluwa said.
The national ANC said it would be appealing the judgment after Judge Fayeeza Kathree-Setiloane ordered that Mahumapelo and his PEC be reinstated within two days of her order and that the ANC should pay the legal costs.
