KwaZulu-Natal crisis the top concern at ANC's special meeting
The ANC’s special national executive committee (NEC) meeting this weekend will have to deal with the severe problems facing a number of the party’s provinces — most notably its largest, KwaZulu-Natal. The province’s elective conference was stopped from taking place at the weekend when a disgruntled group of ANC members approached the High Court in Pietermaritzburg to have it interdicted. KwaZulu-Natal has been without leadership since the same court in 2017 nullified its 2015 elective conference after finding some irregularities. The past weekend was meant to be a rerun of that conference. The ANC’s national working committee on Monday received a report on the province.
