ANC to meet with Tlokwe residents
The party says it wants to communicate with residents after reinstating 14 councillors.
JOHANNESBURG - The ANC in the North West says it will be hosting community meetings with Tlokwe residents to inform them of the reinstatement of 14 councillors.
The councillors were expelled by the ANC's provincial disciplinary committee after tabling a motion of no confidence against former mayor Maphetle Maphetle.
But the party's national disciplinary committee overturned the decision on the basis that the charges were laid against the councillors too late.
ANC's Ishmael Mnisi says, "We are immediately engaging with these reinstated members' branches to communicate the decision of the national disciplinary committee. This is part of consolidating our unity and cohesion of the movement in the province."
Earlier in August, the ANC retained control of ward nine in the Tlokwe by-elections with 738 votes.
The Tlokwe Municipality was in the spotlight since Maphetle was voted out in a motion of no-confidence in July. DA mayor Annette Combrink was nominated to take his place.
