• The ANC will oppose the DA’s court application to declare cadre deployment unconstitutional and unlawful.
  • The DA says this move amounts to ‘open defiance’ of the Zondo Commission’s findings.
  • The commission found that cadre deployment was unconstitutional and unlawful.

The ANC will defend its cadre deployment policy – which has been branded unconstitutional and unlawful by the Zondo Commission – in court.

Last month, the DA brought an application to the Gauteng High Court in Pretoria and asked it to do just that – declare the policy unconstitutional and unlawful.

The DA’s campaign against cadre deployment is headed by MP Leon Schreiber.

The DA has received the ANC’s motion to oppose their application.

According to Schreiber, their case against cadre deployment is built on the same constitutional and legal foundation used by the Zondo Commission. He said the ANC’s decision to oppose the application amounted to “open defiance of the Commission’s findings”.

“If the ANC were in any way committed to ‘effecting the measures required to eliminate conditions and conduct that enable state capture and systemic corruption’, the party would have supported the DA’s case to proceed unopposed so that South Africa could be freed from cadre deployment corruption as soon as possible,” Schreiber said.

“Instead, as they have done so many times before, Ramaphosa, Mantashe and the ANC have treasonously put party before country.”
