ANC Provincial Chairperson, Supra Mahumapelo, said it is the duty and sole responsibility of every cadre within the movement to defend the revolution. 
“Little differences will not help to fight the regime change agenda. We must put these tensions and little differences behind us and defend the movement. It is important that we go back and eliminate these challenges so that we can be a force to be reckoned with,” he said. 
The Bojanala Regional Cadres Assembly was held last weekend, on the day the party was supposed to hold the Bojanala Regional Conference. The conference was however postponed because of a court interdict obtained by a disgruntled group last Friday (11 August 2017).

Councillor accused of intimidating ANC Chairperson out on bail

The African National Congress (ANC) in Bokone Bophirima said it is shocked and disappointed by the conduct of its councilor who’s charged with intimidating the party’s Provincial Chairperson, Supra Mahumapelo. 
The ANC’s Ward 13 Councillor, Ditebogo Kamogelo Molema. appeared briefly before the Molopo Regional Court in Mahikeng on Wednesday (16 August 2017) and was granted R3000 bail. The case against 31-year-old Molema was postponed to 22 September 2017. He faces charges of intimidation after he allegedly sent a text message that contained death threats to the ANC Provincial Chairperson.
Provincial Secretary of the ANC in Bokone Bophirima, Dakota Legoete, told Mogolodi that the ANC is “extremely disappointed” by allegations against Molema and said the party would be instituting disciplinary action against him. 
“As the ANC in the province we are extremely disappointed by the fact that the accused is a member of the ANC and a ward councilor. We will invoke disciplinary action against him because as the ANC we do not promote this kind of behavior in our organization,” the Provincial Secretary said. 
“What makes the matter even worse is that these actions were against a senior member of the party who is our Chairperson. However, we will allow the courts and legal system to take its course as they are the highest body in the country,” Legoete said.
