'Unhappiness with WC administration opportune moment to revive ANC in province'
Earlier this month, the ANC disbanded its Western Cape provincial executive committee, replacing it with an interim committee.
In the province as part of a deployment to brief branches on the decision, party secretary general Ace Magashule said on Saturday that the interim leadership is fulfilling its mandate of bringing stability to the organisation.
