High Court rules decision to disband ANC's North West PEC was unlawful
The Gauteng High Court in Johannesburg has ruled that the decision by the ANC to disband the North West provincial executive committee in September 2018 was unlawful and was to be set aside.
Delivering judgment, Judge Fayeeza Kathree-Setiloane said the applicants were entitled to relief and to reinstate the disbanded PEC.
This comes after the disbanded North West PEC approached the High Court to overturn the decision made by the ANC's national executive committee.
Former North West ANC chairperson Supra Mahumapelo, represented by advocate Dali Mpofu, claimed the decision by the NEC wasn't "impartial".
