On Friday morning, ’Maseribane had confirmed that he would not attend the weekend assembly as per the court order.
His term as party leader ended in March.
The order was applied for by some party members who were not happy that the National Executive Committee (NEC) wanted to hold the leadership elective conference in June, instead of March.
’Maseribane who sounded emotional in his speech said he was ready to serve the party as a former leader and a political reference.
He assured the party members that he is never going to leave the BNP, although he has met so many challenges that include being kicked out at the end of his term.
“This is unlike other leaders who were ushered out smoothly and peacefully,” he said.
’Maseribane who received a warm welcome into the rather controversial elective conference, pleaded with those in attendance to respect themselves and the party for the sake of unity, peace and love.
