WC ANC claims members being threatened by Ses'Khona
Songezo Mjongile today read out text messages allegedly written to him by Loyiso Nkohla.
CAPE TOWN - The African National Congress (ANC)'s provincial secretary in the Western Cape claims some party members are being threatened by leaders of the Ses'Khona People's Rights Movement.
Songezo Mjongile told the media today that Ses'Khona leaders have been intimidating him for several months.
Ses'Khona leaders Andile Lili and Loyiso Nkohla were previously suspended as ANC members for bringing the party into disrepute.
The duo's also believed to be behind the human waste fiasco which saw faeces being thrown on the steps of the provincial legislature and the airport.
During a media briefing today, Mjongile read text messages allegedly written to him by Nkohla.
"It is you Songezo Mjongile that we lost respect for as an ANC leader. Without mincing words, we have lost confidence in you, even if you claim the ANC branches support you. You will never succeed suspending us."
Meanwhile, Ses'Khona plans to march to Parliament against rampant unemployment tomorrow.
The ANC earlier sent a stern message to party members who plan on taking part in the march.
Previous marches have been marred by violence.
Mjongile says it won't condone rogue behaviour by party members.
He says he's aware of a few ANC members who will be joining in but has warned they could face disciplinary action.
"ANC members who involve themselves in such activities will bring the party into disrepute and action will be taken against them."
Lili and Nkohla have been a thorn in the side of the Democratic Alliance-led Western Cape government.
They've both previously been suspended from the ANC for bringing the party into disrepute.
