Mahikeng: The African National Congress (ANC) National Disciplinary Committee (NDC) has on June 25 taken the suspension of Supra Mahumapelo and Bitsa Lenkopane on review. This is to give the two a chance to come plead their case within 15 days.
The two had been suspended for 5 years on April 27 and given instructions to take remedial action. They had been charged for organizing a parallel Siyanqoba Rally event with that of the Interim Provincial Committee (IPC) in December 2020 in Mareetsane. Both Applicants applied for review of the decision to the Provincial Disciplinary Committee PDC. The applications were heard on June 21.
“Having considered the facts and arguments presented by both parties, the NDC is of the view that the case was not properly ventilated in the provincial level and that the interest of justice for both the charged members and the ANC would best be served if the matter is referred back to the PDC for re hearing and finalized within 15 days” said Mildred Oliphant Chairperson of the NDC.
