ANC: KZN leadership should have consulted Luthuli House over appeal
The High Court in Pietermaritzburg on Tuesday declared the decisions taken at a gathering invalid.
JOHANNESBURG - The African National Congress (ANC) says the party's structures in KwaZulu-Natal should have consulted Luthuli House before publicly announcing that it will appeal a court ruling nullifying the outcome of its 2015 provincial elective conference.
The High Court in Pietermaritzburg on Tuesday declared the decisions taken at that gathering invalid.
ANC spokesperson Zizi Kodwa says the provincial leadership should approach Luthuli House.
“It’s important that we don’t send different signals about what we think should happen as a consequence of that decision.”
The case was brought by five disgruntled ANC members who argued that the election took place prematurely without having addressed their grievances.
It was during that gathering that former provincial Premier Senzo Mchunu was ousted and replaced with Sihle Zikalala.
