Eastern Cape supported Mabuyane
Meanwhile, the ANC Women’s League Provincial Task Team (PTT) in the Eastern Cape has appointed Premier Oscar Lubabalo Mabuyane as the party’s chairman, Mlungisi Mvoko as his deputy and Lulama Ngcukaitobi as regional secretary.
Mabuyane was the regional chairman before the dissolution of the regional executive committee. He is currently the coordinator of the Task Team.
The decision follows the outcome of the PTT meeting over the weekend in preparation for next year’s General Election.
The PTT also decided that the ANC in the Eastern Cape should nominate a minimum of two women from the region to be part of the ANC leadership.
ANC Women’s League PTT Convenor Bukiwe Fanta said the decision was unanimous. “The PTT that sat down on Saturday is a perfect PTT. It includes all the constituencies that are part of the PTT team immediately elected. Even our regional secretary, we are unanimous in support of this result we have decided. We are behind comrade Mabuyane as president, comrade Ngcukaithobi as secretary; comrade Mvoko as vice president and comrade Helen as DSG. “
Conflict in the North West
In the North West, tensions between the ANC Interim Provincial Committee (IPC) and the Provincial List Committee (PLC) party appear to be simmering.
The IPC said it had decided to overthrow the PLC, and later summoned its chairman and vice president to appear before a disciplinary committee. The IPC accuses them of bringing the party on behalf.
The PLC investigated disputes in several cities and identified 155 councilors on the list, but they were never nominated by their respective communities. In its report, the committee found that some IPC members were involved in the processing of the list. The committee recommended that non-citizens resign.
IPC Coordinator, Hlomane Chauke explains, “PLC of the North West, we know they have gone to the wrong place issuing letters, do all these things should be done internally. There is an ANC policy of all of us “The IPC has come to the conclusion that the building will be demolished, and comrade Lorna and comrade Joe Mboweni, we must apologize for naming the party. We have already sent them a letter.”
ANC financial crisis:
On Monday, ANC spokeswoman Pule Mabe described as “fake news” reports in the media that party in trouble with the taxman.
The ANC reportedly owes the South African Revenue Service (SARS) more than R100 million in taxes, starting over several years.
Mabe said in a statement that the party was wrong.
He said they have not seen any letter from SARS to pay their taxes within seven days.
According to Mabe the media coverage of the issue is worrying.
“This is a huge falsehood that is happening around the community and in public. The ANC and SARS are collaborating from time to time, as a tax collector and they have such a relationship. decided to speak on behalf of the ANC and SARS when they were not in the industry and in the media, because these people are now running on social media, decided that they would use this as a runaway say it ‘s a story. worry. ”
Pule Mabe said there had been no discussion from SARS about his tax status:
