Meanwhile, the ANC has expelled former NEC member Carl Niehaus who is also the spokesperson of the disbanded MKMVA.
Niehaus was found guilty of six counts of misconduct for contravening the ANC constitution, according to eNCA News.
Charges against Niehaus included comments about the law being used to fight ANC factional battles.
The party’s National Disciplinary Committee found that Niehaus, like all other members of the ANC, was bound by the code of conduct of the organisation.
