[LISTEN] Supra Mahumapelo says 'we are not elated nor do we feel vindicated'

The South Gauteng High Court on Wednesday handed down a judgment that the African National Congress's (ANC) decision to dissolve the North West's Provincial Executive Committee (PEC) was not in accordance with the law.

The disbanded PEC is to, therefore, be reinstated.

READ: ANC to appeal judgment on ANC North West PEC

This judgment was handed down after former North West ANC chairperson and premier Supra Mahumapelo and four others challenged the ANC’s decision to disband the PEC.

The ANC has said that it will be appealing the court's decision.

Former North West Premier Supra Mahumapelo says as a member of the ANC, he doesn't derive joy when ruling like these are made against his own organisation.

The ruling is an indication that there are some problems with the party that we need to attend to. We are not elated nor do we feel vindicated. We just hope that all of us as a collective, the membership, and the executive committee can then ask ourselves what are the lessons from this whole thing and together move forward?

Supra Mahumapelo, Former North West Premier

As an ANC member, he says his hope is that the party moves forward and ensures that it wins the upcoming elections.

We need to be endorsing unity and make sure that we unite the organisation. However unity is not something that you achieve overnight, it is a road that is under construction.

Supra Mahumapelo, Former North West Premier
