ANC Free State conference has been cancelled by the Bloemfontein High Court

It appears the ANC Free State Conference will not be able to take place this coming weekend.

Bloemfontein’s High Court has ordered that the conference not be held until branch general meetings are conducted in a lawful manner. The Court regards the previous meetings as unlawful and irregular.

Briefly.co.za gathered that Hanno Bekker is the attorney for the 26 ANC members who brought the case. He has made it known that there has to be a seven day notice period before a general meeting is allowed to be held.

BusinessLive reports that Bekker said for this reason there was not enough time to convene the meetings.

This is all happening only a day after the Free State provincial general council was held in Parys. Nkosazana Dlamini-Zuma was nominated as the province’s presidential candidate.

The Free State provincial executive committee’s term ended in May of this year. The court recently ordered the provincial conference to take place this weekend.
