The Bloemfontein High Court will hear an urgent application by disgruntled members of the African National Congress on Thursday.
The group wants the elective conference to be nullified, ahead of the party’s 54th National Conference, which starts this weekend. They want all the Free State delegates going to the National Conference to be interdicted as they feel more than 100 disputes from the branches in that province have not been adequately dealt with.
According to reports, most of the disgruntled members are supporters of Deputy President Cyril Ramaphosa, who is a forerunner to take over from Jacob Zuma at the helm of the ANC.
Ace Magashule, a known supporter of Nkosazana Dlamini-Zuma, is expected to stand unopposed for the position of ANC Chairman in the Free State.
