By Thys Khiba – The provincial coordinator of the SA National Civic Organisation (SANCO) in Free State, Gift Poli has called on all members of the Sanco in the province to unite and show commitment in building a civic organisation.

On 13 May, the SACP and the COSATU in the province led by Bheki Stofile and Monyatso Mahlatsi assembled all existing factions of the civic organisation in the province in effort to unite the civic organisation, in Bloemfontein at Hillside B&B Conference Hall.

“…in an unprecedented move assembled all existing factions of SANCO in the Free State for purposes of unifying the civic movement in the Free State province,” said Poli.

As the civic organisation is expected to host the provincial elective conference in 90 days, the three and all existing factions of the Sanco were discouraged from existing. These factions have been in and out of Gauteng High Court since their inception.

The move to unite SANCO was at first met with much resistance, this resistance was inspired mainly by a cabal within the civic movement that enjoys a camaraderie of looting organisational resources, this cabal enjoyed the fragmented state of SANCO such that it would continue looting unbothered,” said Poli.

Poli has admitted that the fragmentation of the organisation has giving criminals an opportunity to use Sanco for personal gains.

The fragmentation of SANCO has left many communities without a voice, it has hampered the progress of our social cohesion it has also opened space for opportunist to use the plight of our people for selfish material gain,” Poli said.

Meanwhile, the organisation has taken a decision to appoint provincial task teams (PTT) that will lead the project of an elective conference in three months.

Godfrey Mayekiso has been appointed as the Convener, with Musa Tsholeka and McDonald Donald as the 1st deputy Convener and 2nd deputy Convener.

Gift Poli has been appointed as the Coordinator with DuduNkosi as deputy Coordinator, German Ramathebane as Fundraiser and Mxolosi Pali as Organiser. These include 37 additional members who are part of the PTT.

The PTT is expected to disband all regions and formulate united regional task teams. The names of the additional members will be announced as soon as the organisation is done with all regional task teams.

“The PTT hit the ground running with the office of the Provincial Coordinator dissolving structures in both Mangaungand Fezile Dabi Regions appointing RTTs towards a united SANCO structure.

“This has been welcomed with both hands by comrades from the respective regions. With the positive response received from meetings that were recently held in Waai-hoek in Bloemfontein and Mosipidi hall in Parys, the office of the Provincial Coordinator will be visiting both Thabo Mofutsanyana and Lejweleputswa regions in this upcoming weekend to repeat the exercise that was done in Mangaung and Fezile Dabi, Xhariep region will receive attention immediately after Thabo Mofutsanyana.”
