The African National Congress‘s KwaZulu-Natal Provincial Task Team will on Monday go back to the Pietermaritzburg High Court to seek an earlier date for the party to state its case.
The party’s planned provincial elective conference this weekend was halted by a disgruntled ANC group who won an interdict from the court on Friday.
Provincial Task Team Coordinator Sihle Zikalala says branch delegates who attended the abandoned conference, have instructed the provincial task team to challenge the judge’s decision to grant the interdict without ‘he says’ hearing both sides.
“We are going to explore avenues to challenge the conduct of the Judge. We believe that it undermines the independence of the judiciary; the view of the meeting, which is the view we agreed on, we will engage with the court to apply for an early return to present our case on matters raised. So we will be applying for that on Monday, so that’s what we have been instructed by delegates to do.”
The ANC hopes to re-convene the provincial conference before the end of next month.
