ANC NEC Elective Conference: Bathabile Dlamini Fights Her Disqualification In Court

The ruling African National Congress (ANC) is holding its elective conference next week, but one woman who isn’t impressed with how things have turned out of recent is former ANC Women’s League president Bathabile Dlamini, who has been disqualified from running for the party’s national executive committee (NEC).

Dlamini, through her lawyers, Tim Sukazi Inc., acknowledged receipt of the sis qualification notice while also noting that she will challenge her disqualification.

The ANC’s electoral committee head Kgalema Motlanthe sent a letter to Dlamini on Wednesday, informing her of her disqualification. About 856 branch nominations have been received for the NEC position, with Dlamini hot in the race at no. 15 – well, until her disqualification following a vetting process.

The electoral committee, also known as Elexions, pointed out that historical records indicate that she had been found guilty of a serious crime in court and had had a prison sentence exceeding six months. Records show she had previously bagged a four-year prison sentence with two of the years carrying an option of a fine.

Well, Tim Sukazi Inc. averred it is pursuing the case in court to enforce her rights. It’s unclear in whose favor the case will end, but South Africans are watching.
