NEC Meeting Postponed amid fears of Violence

 ANC has postponed its national executive committee (NEC) meeting amid fears of violence in KwaZulu-Natal as former President Jacob Zuma’s supporters gather outside his home in order to defend him.

The NEC meeting was scheduled to take place over the next three days.

The party’s deputy secretary general Jessie Duarte announced the decision taken by ANC top officials in a statement on Friday afternoon.

She said they were mindful of the situation developing in KwaZulu-Natal

In her statement on Friday, Secretary General Duarte said officials understood the need to give clear and principled leadership to ensure the maintenance of the rule of law and to avoid violence, injury and loss of life

There has been rising tension in some quarters of Zuma’s home province since he was handed 15-month jail sentence by the Constitutional Court for being in contempt of court.
