At its meeting of the 31st of May 2019, the NEC directed that a matter which arose out of the elections report be investigated. The matter pertains to the formation of small political parties allegedly to weaken the base of the African National Congress (ANC).
The NEC directed the NWC to set up an ad hoc committee to ascertain whether or not any NEC or other members of the ANC were involved in the establishment of other political parties. At its regular sitting on Tuesday, 11 June 2019, the NWC resolved to establish the Ad-Hoc Committee, to be led by ANC stalwarts, Comrade Kgalema Motlanthe and Frene Ginwala and assisted by Advocate Fezeka Magano. The terms of reference for the committee have been finalized. It is our hope that the committee will complete its work within the next sixty days.
