Yes, the dates have been announced and confirmed by the Provincial Secretary Za-mani Saul, but it would not be surprising if another date is set.
This is because there are still issues that the other faction thinks can sway the pendulum or can put them in a better position to outweigh the one that has allegedly a convincing number of branches.
All roads lead to the Colesburg elective conference set for May 11-14, 2017.
At the regional level, like in the other regions, John Taolo Gaetsewe is caught up in a jig-saw puzzle where branches are still in a tug of war situation.
The premier's faction and the provincial secretary's faction have to face each other like two dogs facing a bone in a dozen of branches still under fierce dispute.
In both camps there is optimism of
emerging victorious, however those close to the tossing of the coin suggest that the so-called Tsunami - a progeny from the pro-premier league that wants her to ascend to the provincial chairmanship has suggested that an interdict be instituted to block the elective conference, seemingly if cards are not in their favour.
Analytically, further postponement of the conference could polarise the effectiveness of the executives assigned to resolve the conflict. If the national and the provincial executive representatives mandated to calm down the differences cannot resolve impending issues, then an interdict might square up the argument - a very very thin chance, of course.
The re-run of a dozen or so disputed branches in Ga-Segonyana and Joe Morolong constituencies under tight supervision of the National Executive Council members on May
6 and 7, 2017 is seen to be the balancing act by the disgruntled faction, but according to political pundits playing the quiz allege that the so called PLUS faction is in the comfort zones because it has more than two-thirds of branches in its bag before going for the mini remedial exercise.
If that is the case, Tsunami - a youth league substructure of the pro-premier camp with all of its disenchantment assembled in one bag, could be obliged to just accept the outcome of the final branch representatives set to go and vote for the provincial executives, as politics is a game of turns in the league.
If certainly the PLUS camp will prevail in its objectives and motive, it must be advised it should not take all the bones with some flesh because, in real life, we need one another . . .
