The Western Cape African National Congress (ANC)has asked national structures to intervene in a row that saw the party’s Cape Town leadership disbanded.
A specially appointed task team will now take over party responsibilities in the Dullah Omar region.
This follows a policy discussion meeting on Saturday that was disrupted by some Cape Town metro branch members.
ANC Western Cape Secretary Faiez Jacobs says disgruntled regional members called a media briefing on Sunday without permission.
“I even had to outline the PEC statement that we’re disbanding Dullah Omar because of the insubordination and because of the inability to serve the region.”
The provincial leadership has referred the matter to national structures and is urging members to abide by the PEC’s decision.
“The task team will consist of the community members, activists from all the areas.”
The issue will not, however, be discussed at the ANC’s national executive committee meeting on Tuesday.
The party’s Zizi Kodwa says that the meeting will instead focus on the upcoming National Policy Conference.
The conference is scheduled to take place at Midrand’s Gallagher Estate this weekend.
