Manana’s R100 000 fine paid in cash
“The NEC resolved to institute an appeal panel in the Eastern Cape which will be composed of four NEC members supported by three (technical resource persons). The four NEC members are comrades Sbu Ndebele (chairperson), Rejoice Mabudafhasi, Joyce Moloi-Moropa and Sdumo Dlamini. There is no other person but these four names.”
Regarding KwaZulu-Natal’s lower South Coast region, which has emerged as backers of Deputy President Cyril Ramaphosa, Mantashe said the NEC received the region’s report on its appeal against its disbandment by the Provincial Executive Committee (PEC).
The region was, however, expected to continue doing its work in all other areas, including the overseeing of BGMs as we prepare for conference.
“After deliberation on the report, the NEC resolved to affirm the decision of the PEC that the region must convene a regional conference within six months.
“The PEC shall exercise oversight over the municipality.”
The elective conference, where President Jacob Zuma’s successor will emerge, will be held in Jourg next month. – ANA
