ANC decision to disband North West PEC was unlawful – high court


JOHANNESBURG, February 6 – The South Gauteng High Court in Johannesburg on Wednesday said it found the decision made by African National Congress (ANC) to disband the North West provincial executive committee (PEC) was unlawful and unconstitutional.

Former North West ANC chairperson and premier, Supra Mahumapelo and four others were challenging the national ANC’s decision to disband the PEC.

Mahumapelo, who was represented by Advocate Dali Mpofu, was removed as premier in August last year after protests flared up in the province. He was replaced by Job Mokgoro.

The ANC said it was studying the judgement.
