At the ANC North West Provincial Elective Conference, it is reported that a poisoning happened, which resulted in one delegate becoming ill and having to leave the conference. This caused the conference to be cancelled. The delegate, who was male and 42 years old, caused other delegates to be concerned that the food at the conference venue had been tainted. After some delegates exposed members of the Interim Provincial Committee for installing themselves as voting delegates, the Mahikeng High Court decided on Friday to interdict the highly contentious conference that was scheduled to take place on Saturday. In order to guide the province toward an election, the provisional structure that is being supervised by the National Executive Committee of the party has been put into place.
The conference has been postponed multiple times, which caused the provincial leadership to miss the deadline set forth by the national headquarters of the ANC for the month of July. This was caused by disagreements in each of the province's four regions. Accusations of poisoning have frequently been rampant in the political conflicts fought by the ANC. The atmosphere at the conference is tight because all of the commissions have been blocked off to the media. Oscar Mabuyane, the chairperson of the African National Congress (ANC) Eastern Cape, narrowly avoided death at the hands of some of his fellow comrades who poisoned him during the elective conference, according to a highly placed source who spoke to the sister publication of The Star, the Daily News.
According to him, Mabuyane and his staff made the decision to withhold the information from the general public. "He is on the road to recovery after his ordeal at home; it was really traumatic, but he will pull through. It would appear that several of his fellow soldiers do not approve of him. Because of this, he has not been seen since the meeting; they came dangerously close to removing him. Both the former premier Supra Mahumapelo and the current Member of Provincial Executive Council (MEC) for Finance, Motlalepula Rosho, are strong candidates for the job of chairperson.
