ANC WC leaders to visit Stellenbosch

9 October 2002, Wednesday

ANC Provincial Chairperson Ebrahim Rasool and Provincial Secretary Mcebisi Skwatsha will visit Stellenbosch this morning (Wednesday 9 October) after the municipality fell to the ANC-NNP coalition.

They will attend a press conference with Premier Marthinus van Schalkwyk, 2pm at the Boland District Municipality offices in Alexander Street, Stellenbosch.

The NNP will welcome back into its fold some of its members, which will make it possible for the ANC-NNP coalition to govern the municipality.

Said ANC Provincial Leader Ebrahim Rasool: "We are happy with this development.

"Symbolically it is important for us as we approach our 51st National Conference which takes place in Stellenbosch from 16 - 20 December. We would not want to host one our most important event this year in a town under DA-rule."
