The ANC has disowned Philani “PG” Mavundla, the former financial backer of former president Jacob Zuma.
On Sunday Mavundla officially joined the NFP at a ceremony in his home town of Greytown.
Despite the fanfare, the chairperson of the ANC in the Inkosi Bhambatha region (uMzinyathi), Lucky Moloi, said they were surprised by the “publicity stunt” because Mavundla was no longer a member.
“He moved his membership from our region five or six years ago, and we don’t know where he went to. As he has not been a member of our region, we don’t know where or when he resigned as a member,” Moloi said.
