ANC provincial secretary Lulama Ngcukayitobi exclusively told DispatchLIVE that all ANC deployees were expected to attend.

“This is where status report is supposed to be given on ANC and governance matters. We also check how far governance has gone since the January 8 statement by President Cyril Ramaphosa,” Ngcukayitobi said.

The Orient Theatre is expected to be a hive of activity as MPLs and councillors deployed by the ANC are supposed to attend. Party members are trickling in at the East London City Hall for registration.

The forum takes place as the ANC is reconfiguring its troikas and intending to reconfigure its provincial governance. In recent days Mnquma council defied the ANC provincial leadership when it elected Ndyebo Skelenge as the mayor while the ANC wanted Thabo Matiwane.

Such defiance issues are expected to top the agenda of the forum. It could not be confirmed at the time of writing if premier Phumulo Masualle and his executive will attend the forum.
