Political Desk: ANC EC faces more legal challenges, leadership battle continues

The African National Congress (ANC) Provincial Executive Committee in the Eastern Cape faces a second legal challenge.

A group opposing the Eastern Cape elective conference has called on the national executive committee (NEC) to renounce the newly elected provincial leadership.

Last week, an urgent application by the faction to nullify the conference was struck off the roll.

They essentially saying that there was not a quorum and that the NEC members who were there and oversaw the process, oversaw a fraudulent process and they asking for all the verification process as well as the appeal processes...

Failing which they are going to be taking legal action and that deadline for today, 9 October.

Many leaders are out on the campaign trail.

Ramaphosa addressed the ANC Youth League in Gauteng and and MK council meetings at the weekend.

I think what is interesting here is that on the other side of the country in KwaZulu-Natal, Sihle Zakalala was also addressing a youth league conference, reminding people that it is sexist to try and associate Nkosazana Dlamini Zuma with her former husband.
