PAYCO SG also confirmed that they are behind the move to make the former Deputy President Mr. Alton Mphethi to run the affairs of the party as the president until the next PAC congress.
Below is the copy of the press statement:
PAYCO NEC POSITION ON THE EXPULSION OF CDE LETLAPA MPHAHLELE.
27 May 2013
The National Executive Committee of the PAC had an NEC meeting yesterday 26th May 2013 at the head offices of the PAC in Johannesburg.
In the meeting the NEC received a report from the National Disciplinary Committee (NDC) around charges of cdeLetlapaMphahlela. The NDC found cdeLetlapaMphahlela guilty of all five charges and expelled him from the PAC for good and the NEC meeting endorsed the decision.
The National executive committee of PAYCO as a discipline component of the PAC fully supports the decision of NEC as a constitutional decision that is binding to all PAC members. It has always been our conviction as the youth of the PAC that the political challenges in the PAC are as a result of the dictatorship style of leadership by the former President LetlapaMphahlele who has led a party by decree for the past seven years. His expulsion will bring back a lot of membership the party has lost recently and it will immediately put back the PAC in the arena of politics in the country.
Firm actions should at all times be taken against any element that seeks to undermine the constitution of the PAC and its disciplinary code of conduct.
As PAYCO, all our support will be rallied behind Cde Arnold Mphethi as the acting President of the PAC and the entire NEC till the next congress.
Our objective as the youth is to ultimately remove all the indiscipline individuals who are continuing to sow divisions amongst the members of the PAC because this may have a negative impact on the performance of the party in the 2014 national elections.
As PAYCO, We call upon all members of PAC and its component structures to invest much effort in re uniting the PAC.
