In the case of KwaZulu Natal, the Pietermaritzburg's court decided that the 27 members of the ANC executive cannot participate in the meeting tomorrow, while the Bloemfontein's court invalided the results of the provincial conference of Free State, which reelected Ace Magashule as president.

It warned the embattled Free State executive committee that should they participate in voting and "contaminate" the national conference, they would approach the courts.

He said the NEC decided the provincial executive committees (PECs) of KwaZulu-Natal and the Free State would not be allowed to vote on any matter.

"The decision taken there is that the Free State, KZN and Bojanala [region in the North West], all the structures that are nullified will not be voting delegates at conference", Mantashe said. "Why is the courts making these judgments on the eve of conference. In addition to this, upon realising that there was some dissatisfaction, several meetings were initiated with the applicants and they chose not to cooperate", he said.
