The ANC’s North West provincial executive committee (PEC) has issued a statement saying cabinet should adopt a more supportive role to the province and not put the entire administration under Section 100.

Acting Provincial Secretary, Suzan Datjie says the latter creates the perception that national government is unfairly targeting the province.

“We welcome the initiative of finalising the assessment first before a final determination could be made. It is our hope that this intervention seeks nothing else but to strengthen existing efforts of delivering services to our people of Bokone Bophirima.”

Dantjie further stated that eventhough the SACP has no fundamental political differnces with the ANC, the centre of the problem is SACP provincial secretary Madoda Sambatha who was removed as MEC by by Supra Mahumapelo in 2017.

“The Officials resolved to continue to politically engage ANC-led Alliance partners, in particular the  SACP. Linked to this, the ANC is going to do an investigation on the SACP’s role in the EFF tabling a motion of no confidence in Premier Mahumapelo and a possible involvement by some of its  members in the recent incidents of violence, particularly in Mahikeng, Taung and Matlosana,” she added.

AFRICAN NATIONAL CONGRESS BOKONE BOPHIRIMA ON THE NATIONAL GOVERNMENT’S
SECTION 100 INTERVENTION

Officials of the African National Congress (ANC) Provincial Executive
Committee (PEC) of Bokone Bophirima note the national intervention in the
provincial government administration through the invoking of Section 100
of the Constitution of the Republic of South Africa.

We welcome the initiative of finalising the assessment first before a
final determination could be made. It is our hope that this intervention
seeks nothing else but to strengthen existing efforts of delivering
services to our people of Bokone Bophirima.

Our view is that Cabinet should rather adopt a more supportive role to the
province and not put the entire administration under Section 100, as this
will clear the perception that national government is unfairly targeting
the province.

Officials of the PEC also discussed the continuous pronouncements against
the Premier by SACP Provincial Secretary, Cde Madoda Sambatha.

In Monday’s meeting the Officials agreed that in their analysis, the SACP
has got no fundamental political differences with the ANC. At the centre
of the problem is the anger Cde Sambatha suffers from, partly because of
reasons related to his redeployment as MEC.

The Officials resolved to continue to politically engage ANC-led Alliance
partners, in particular the SACP. Linked to this, the ANC is going to do
an investigation on the SACP’s role in the EFF tabling a motion of no
confidence in Premier Mahumapelo and a possible involvement by some of
iits members in the recent incidents of violence, particularly in
Mahikeng, Taung and Matlosana.
