Tripartite alliance to meet for talks
An urgent meeting is to be held among the tripartite alliance in the Western Cape to discuss their relationship and the upcoming local government elections. This comes after the SA Communist Party accused the Western Cape ANC of racism and sidelining them as an alliance partner. SACP provincial secretary Khaya Magaxa says the party has received an ANC invitation to a meeting next week. ANC provincial chairman James Ngculu says he has spoken to Magaxa, who indicated that they should meet. He says he does not think there is a rift in the alliance. Meanwhile, Cosatu provincial secretary Tony Ehrenreich says the alliance has never worked and that it should heal the rift. SACP Provincial Secretary Khaya Magaxa.
