Court strips Free State ANC chairperson of his power ahead of conference
This is the third blow to the Nkosazana Dlamini-Zuma faction from the courts in one day
ANC Free State delegates can still attend the national conference, but chairperson Ace Magashule has been stripped of his power. The High Court in Bloemfontein declared that the provincial conference held this past weekend, and all decisions and resolutions taken there, were unlawful and void. This is the third blow to the Nkosazana Dlamini-Zuma faction from the courts in one day, and comes on the cusp of the ANC conference kicking off on Saturday.
