Political analyst, Professor Sam Koma, says it will be interesting to see how the Electoral Court will rule on the ANC’s case to have the Umkhonto Wesizwe party deregistered.
Yesterday, the governing party said the MK trademark belongs to the ANC and the newly formed party is trying to use its proud history of armed struggle against the apartheid regime to lend credibility to what is a blatantly counter-revolutionary agenda.
In in an interview with YNews, Koma says this litigation mirrors the ANC’s 2008 case against COPE.
Speaking on former president Jacob Zuma’s suspension from the party for endorsing and campaigning for the MK party, Prof Koma says the ANC’s decision was inevitable.
While delivering his closing address at the ANC’s Lekgotla this evening, ANC President, Cyril Ramaphosa, took swipe at break away factions of the party.

He says they usually sound radical, but all they actually want to do is to deprive the ANC of state power to change lives.
