The ANC in Free State believes that under the leadership ofPremier Sefora Sisi Ntombela there is a misalignment between party election manifesto and the government’s performance.

Trying to align its election manifesto with the government’s performance, the ANC PEC took a decision to recall Ntombelaas the Premier and Mxolosi Siyonzana as the MangaungMetropolitan Municipality Mayor.

The PEC mandated its officials to engage the national officials to process and finalise the decision.

“The ANC in the province wishes to thank these comrades for their contribution in the portfolios within which they were deployed.

“Furthermore, the PEC appreciates the comradely spirit with which the said comrades received the ANC decision,” said Motsoeneng.

Meanwhile, the PEC confirmed that the newly elected secretary, Motsoeneng is given a mandate to deal with party members who are renting mobs to attack appointed leaders, using money tocreate social distance amongst members of the party and having parallel structures within the party.

In addition to restricted behaviours within the party, disruption of the ANC meetings and violating social media policy are classified as un-ANC.”

“The PEC resolved that all these matters need urgent attention and mandated the Provincial Secretary to act swiftly in arresting same. The PEC is agreed that the unity of the organisation must work for the organisation (and not against it.”
