His statement comes from the fact that he believes he was deliberately left of the guest list at certain events and he did not receive any VIP cards.

"The ANC officials must recognise me and not treat my like an ordinary person," he told The Daily Sun.

Penny believes that it all started last year when he stood against Limpopo Premier, Stan Mathabatha for the provincial ANC chairman position in Polokwane in June.

"They mustn't sabotage me because I contested during the conference," said Penny.

The musician also believed the party officials are up to something because they had not invited him when Cyril Ramaphosa visited Limpopo on Sunday for the manifesto launch in Thohoyandou.

Penny also mentioned that when he's at ANC rallies, officials always tell him that he's disrupting proceedings.

"I cant watch and be quiet while people destroy my talent," he added.

Meanwhile Mathabatha's spokesman, Kenny Mathiba said many distinguished people are not always invited to functions. He also added that the people have misled Penny Penny for contesting for the position of Premier.
