The PAC’s national structure has suspended Narius Moloto as leader of one faction of the party, following his failure to comply with Judge Mavundla’s earlier judgment.
On Friday, 12 July 2019, the North Gauteng High Court’s Judge Miller ordered the Pan Africanist Congress of Azania’s (PAC) Narius Moloto to set aside his decision to suspend the constitution and structures of the party. Although Moloto subsequently filed to appeal the decision on Friday, 19 July 2019, the judgment meant that the PAC had won the case against Moloto.
The party’s National Executive Committee (NEC) met on Saturday, 20July 2019, where a resolution was taken to suspend Narius Moloto following the court’s order. Moloto was ordered by the court to lead the party into 2019 elections, where they were able to secure their only Parliamentary seat, currently occupied by Mzwanele Nyhontso who leads a rival faction against Moloto.
The letter was sent to Moloto to notify him of his suspension with detailed information. Among reasons for his suspension, the blatant dishonour of Judge Mavundla’s judgment which ordered the two factions to host a united elective conference.
While the party has decided to hold its conference in Bloemfontein by August 2019, as ordered by Judge Mavundla, Moloto is organising a parallel conference to be held towards month end of August 2019 in Marble Hall, Limpopo.
The letter also states that Moloto has been directly communicating with the structures of the party whilst the constitution of the party does not make provision for such an act. Moloto is being blamed for misinformation and confusion towards the structures of the party, which led to the infuriation of the party’s leadership.
Moloto has been mandated by the party to step aside from all the functions of the party and is only allowed to attend the branch meetings as an ordinary member, granted he attends at a branch that complies with the constitution of the party.
