ANC per­sists with ac­tion de­spite high court rul­ing

The Herald (South Africa) - - NEWS - Claudi Mailovich

THE ANC in KwaZulu-Natal will con­tinue with its dis­ci­plinary process against Dr Makhosi Khoza‚ de­spite a judg­ment declar­ing its lead­er­ship un­law­ful‚ the out­spo­ken ANC MP said yes­ter­day.

“They said they are going ahead with charg­ing me‚ ir­re­spec­tive of the fact that they are il­le­git­i­mate.

“On Sun­day they are ex­pect­ing me to ap­pear. But I am still con­sult­ing with my lawyer‚” Khoza said.

The prov­ince was sent into what could be a lead­er­ship cri­sis when the Pi­eter­mar­itzburg High Court de­clared that the 2015 pro­vin­cial elec­tive con­fer­ence‚ in which Sihle Zikalala was elected as its chair­man‚ was un­law­ful and in­valid.

Huff­in­g­ton Post South Africa re­ported ear­lier this week that Khoza said she be­lieved they could not con­tinue the ac­tion against her as the lead­er­ship of the prov­ince was un­law­ful.

Khoza was charged by the ANC in KwaZulu-Natal for bring­ing the party into dis­re­pute af­ter her nu­mer­ous calls for Pres­i­dent Ja­cob Zuma to step down.

Her dis­ci­plinary hear­ing was set to start on Sun­day last week‚ but was post­poned to this Sun­day af­ter her at­tor­ney asked for more time.
