Helen Zille, the Federal President of the Democratic Alliance (DA), has lamented the decision of the African National Congress (ANC) to defend the deployment of the cadres.
Last month, the DA launched a legal bid in the High Court in Pretoria to have the court declare the installation of the cadres unconstitutional and illegal.
This comes after Chief Justice and State Capture Commission chairman Raymond Zondo described the ANC’s policy as unconstitutional and illegal in the fifth part of the State Capture report released last month.
The ANC has since announced it will reject the DA’s application.
“The Zondo Commission has clearly shown that the ANC’s cadre policies are at the heart of state capture and corruption and a failed criminal state. That was the state capture, leading to the logical conclusion of the cadre deployment. The Zondo Commission has made it very clear that Judge Zondo believes that the deployment of cadres is unconstitutional, so when we go to court to make this official, the deployment of cadres is unconstitutional, it must not be allowed, this is the very policy that the ANC is defending. it is at the heart of the captured, corrupt and criminal state.”
In the report below, the DA goes to court over the installation of ANC cadres:
The ANC’s response to the court challenge
Meanwhile, the ANC has since said yes about a political party trying to take internal ANC politics to court.
According to ANC spokesperson Pule Mabe, the party’s legal department is considering the matter, as seen in the video below:
