PAC seeks interdict on convention

The Pan Africanist Congress (PAC) will apply for an urgent court interdict against this weekend’s convention organised by another faction of the party, secretary general Mfanelo Skwatsha said on Wednesday.

The party would ask the court for an order preventing the faction from using the PAC’s name.

He said the party’s constitution had never mentioned a convention.

The faction announced earlier this month that a ”third PAC national convention” would take place in Cape Town on Sunday.

Skwatsha said the PAC’s leadership did not know who the organisers of the convention were.

The organisers include a group that claims to be the PAC leadership in the Western Cape.

The application would be argued in the Cape High Court on Friday morning, Skwatsha said. — Sapa
