- The DA North West provincial leader Leon Basson feels that ANC MP and former North West premier Supra Mahumapelo’s suspension is 10 years too late
- Basson claims that the province would not be in the shambles that it is if Mahumapelo was suspended a lot earlier
- Mahumapelo and acting ANC Women’s League secretary Bitsa Lenkopane were both recently suspended for misconduct
ANC MP and former North West premier Supra Mahumapelo’s suspension is apparently 10 years too late, as per the DA.
Both Mahumapelo and acting ANC Women’s League secretary Bitsa Lenkopane have been suspended for five years from the ANC after having been found guilty of misconduct.
The DA North West provincial leader Leon Basson came forward to express that if Mahumapelo and acting ANC Women’s League secretary Bitsa Lenkopane had been suspended earlier then the North West province might be in a better state, as reported by IOL.
“For more than 10 years, good governance principles were subverted to advance the interests of factional ANC politics instead of the interests of the people of the North West.”
Both Mahumapelo and Lenkopane have been suspended for five years from the ANC after having been found guilty of misconduct.
Basson highlighted the alarming state of hospitals and clinics that many rely on. He feels that this would not be the case if Mahumapelo and Lenkopane had been canned sooner.
“Hospitals and clinics are understaffed, under-resourced and dilapidated while the education system constantly fails at capacitating learners with the knowledge and skills needed for prosperous and successful adult life."
Now that Supra is out, it is time to rebuild the province and fix his mistakes.
Briefly News previously reported that the former North West Premier Supra Mahumapelo has been suspended from the ruling party for five years following the decision of the provincial disciplinary committee (PDC) of the ANC.
Mahumapelo was suspended along with Bitsa Lekonpane, the acting provincial ANC Women's League secretary in the North West.
The two were accused of sowing disunity within the party after they held parallel rallies in the North West. They were found guilty on charges of misconduct. The rallies took place mere metres away from a rally organised by the North West's interim leadership in Mareetsane in December 2020.
