Political Desk: ANC NEC to meet amid a background of pending court cases

The African National Congress (ANC) National Executive Committee meeting takes place this weekend.

It is a critical meeting, with under 50 days to go before the party faithful gather to elect a new leadership.

Political analyst Karima Brown says this NEC will look to resolve current issues facing the party.

This NEC is ostensibly called to try and put together what constitutes as the mess inside the African National Congress, and we know of course there are court actions pending in the Northern Cape, Eastern Cape and in the Free State.
