AIC wants written commitment from ANC over Matatiele’s future
AIC leaders want a commitment from the ANC that the EC town of Matatiele will be re-incorporated into KZN.
JOHANNESBURG - The African Independent Congress (AIC) says it has agreed in principle to enter into a coalition with the African National Congress (ANC), but has called for a written commitment about the future of Matatiele.
Yesterday, the party met with the governing party's national executive committee to discuss a potential coalition between the two.
But AIC leaders want a commitment from the ANC that the Eastern Cape town of Matatiele will be re-incorporated into KwaZulu-Natal before negotiations can proceed.
Its president, Mandla Galo, says nothing is set in stone yet.
"We are going to take that communication to our legal advisors and if we are happy, we'll enter into a coalition with the ANC. But if we are not happy, we will tell them that we are not interested."
