tlokwe Reinstated Tlokwe councillors register independently

Eight of the 14 Tlokwe councillors who were expelled from the ANC last month have registered independently with the Independent Electoral Commission (IEC).

The Star reported that yesterday the eight councillors registered in Mahikeng, North West, for the by-elections in Potchefstroom on September 18.

The councillors’ expulsions were overturned on Saturday by the ANC’s national disciplinary committee.

Former ANC chief whip in Tlokwe David Kham reportedly told the newspaper last night that he was one of the eight people who had registered as an independent candidate.

“Yes, eight of us met the IEC deadline to register as candidates. I am done with the ANC,” Kham was quoted as saying.

North West IEC electoral officer Tumi Thiba told the newspaper the candidates’ names would be made public after the IEC conducted quality assurances today on the documents provided.
