PIETERMARITZBURG - The African National Congress (ANC) in KwaZulu-Natal has on Tuesday announced it dissolved the Regional Task Team (RTT) for the Moses Mabhida region, which was supposed to hold an elective conference in Pietermaritzburg last week.
The dissolution of the interim structure was taken at a provincial executive committee meeting held on Monday in Durban, provincial spokesperson Nomagugu Simelane-Zulu said.
She said that the region's failure to hold the conference had presented a challenge to the ruling part in the province as there was an instruction that regions and provinces should hold elective gatherings before the end of August.
Unlike in Moses Mabhida, ANC members from the Harry Gwala Region in southern KZN were able to hold their elective conference and beat the August deadline
"There is a standing [national executive committee] NEC resolution that conferences should meet the 31 August deadline 2018, and any other matters regarding electing new leadership should be attended to after the 2019 general elections," said Simelane-Zulu.
