The Pietermaritzburg High Court on Tuesday ruled that the 8th elective conference of the ANC in KwaZulu-Natal was unlawful.
In the so-called “ANC rebels case“‚ a faction supporting former KZN chairman and ousted premier Senzo Mchunu had asked the court to declare the 2015 conference null and void‚ citing various irregularities.
The application was led by Vryheid councillor Lawrence Dube and four other ANC members representing 43 branches. They went to court in July last year to ask for a rerun.
The ruling could challenge the legitimacy of Sihle Zikalala‚ who replaced Mchunu‚ KZN secretary Super Zuma and 38 other officials.
