THE MKVA has come out in support of former North West premier Supra Mahumapelo, saying he’s been treated unfairly.
Their spokesman Carl Niehaus, who was born in Zeerust, said he sees the area as his home.
“As a member of the ANC for 42 years I’m a veteran and an NEC member of MKVA,” he said.
“I’m supporting Mahumapelo. I’m happy an appeal has been lodged because the ANC can’t afford to lose a comrade of his calibre and dedication.”

Defiant Supra digs in heels: ’I’m still an ANC member’
By Tarryn-Leigh Solomons
Cape Town - ANC MP and former North West premier Supra Mahumapelo insists he is still a member of the ruling party until the appeal process in his disciplinary case has been finalised.
This comes after the interim provincial committee (IPC) of the ANC in the North West said that Mahumapelo remains suspended from the party after he was found guilty of violating its code of conduct.

We were not formally told about suspensions, say Supra and Lenkopane as they challenge decision
By Tarryn-Leigh Solomons
ANC MP and former North West premier Supra Mahumapelo and the ANC Women’s League secretary Bitsa Lenkopane have both announced that they’ll be challenging their five-year suspension from the party.
The North West disciplinary committee earlier this week found the pair guilty of misconduct. They were suspended two weeks ago amid claims that they held a parallel rally metres away from one held by the party’s interim leadership committee (IPC) in Mareetsane six months ago.
On Thursday, both Mahumapelo and Lenkopane revealed that they were both not formally informed about their suspension.

First published in the Daily Maverick 168 weekly newspaper.
When polls started coming in ahead of the local government elections in 2016, the ANC realised corruption had become a problem, President Cyril Ramaphosa told the Commission of Inquiry into State Capture this past week. Then the results came in. The party had lost control of both the economic heartland metro of Johannesburg and the political capital metro of Pretoria, among other power-political nodes.
Corruption “leads to a breakdown of party morality, and the ANC becomes less attractive, and it leads to the loss of electoral support. If we don’t [do something], we are on a one-way ticket to oblivion and defeat,” he said on the second day of testimony on State Capture and his role in addressing it.

Ace Magashule, the secretary-general of South Africa’s ruling African National Congress, faces suspension from the party’s ranks after he ignored an ultimatum from its top leadership to vacate his post while he stands trial on graft charges.
The ANC has been struggling to salvage its reputation in the wake of Jacob Zuma’s nine-year rule, which saw billions of rand looted from state coffers. The party forced Zuma to quit in 2018 and replaced him with President Cyril Ramaphosa, but his authority and efforts to tackle corruption have been undermined by Magashule — a Zuma ally.

The ANC disciplinary committee in the North West earlier this week said it had found former premier Supra Mahumapelo and ANC Women’s League acting secretary Bitsa Lenkopane guilty of misconduct.
ANC provincial disciplinary committee chairperson Wendy Matsemela announced the news of the two being suspended from the party for five years.
It appears the suspension will be on hold for now as the two have formally lodged an appeal.

Ramaphosa failed to take responsibility for ANC's gross citizen abuse, says Vegter

"There are mountains of evidence that the ANC-run government and its SOEs have decayed into a fetid swamp of self-enrichment, cronyism, and patronage."

Under the ANC, South Africa has become the only country in the world where night vigils are organised outside courts where high-profile corruption suspects are to appear.
Picture: Michel Bega
To many of us, the youth in the ’70s and ’80s, the ANC and its internal structures, like the United Democratic Front, were attractive to associate with, but not any more. At the time, just by looking at calibre of its leaders, such as the then imprisoned Nelson Mandela and exiled Oliver Tambo, it was easy to conclude the ANC was blessed with the finest. Just those two alone were inspiring leaders and that’s not to mention the long list of their highly disciplined predecessors, from Albert Luthuli right up to founding president John Langalibalele Dube. But the same can’t...

Supra latest: North West left in turmoil despite Mahumalepo's 'grand plans'

Following the suspension of former North-West Premier Supra Mahumapelo from the African National Congress (ANC), the Democratic Alliance (DA) have bemoaned the fact that the province was forced to endure his involvement for so long. 
The opposition party said on Thursday 29 April that despite a plethora of clever ideas having been promised by Supra, the province is now ailing in a state of ruinous unemployment, infrastructure decline and poverty. 
“The fact of the matter is that the North West Province would have been in a better position today if Supra Mahumapelo never happened,” said Leon Basson, the DA’s North West Provincial Leader.
