A report on the halting of the ANC KwaZulu-Natal conference and what transpired will be handed to the party’s national working committee on Monday when a decision on the way forward will be taken. A group of disgruntled members approached the High Court in Pietermaritzburg at the 11th hour on Friday asking that the conference be interdicted from going ahead. This was while delegates were already at the University of Zululand registering to take part. An interim interdict was granted. KwaZulu-Natal is the ANC’s most influential and biggest province. In 2017, its provincial executive committee was declared unlawful by the high court after irregularities at the 2015 conference were challenged by the losing faction. This past weekend’s conference was meant to be a rerun.
