The ABC has not known peace since the February elective conference which ushered into the party’s NEC Professor Nqosa Mahao as the deputy leader. Montoeli Masoetsa was elected spokesperson, ’Matebatso Doti his deputy and Lebohang Hlaele the secretary general with Samuel Rapapa as the chairperson. All five were later axed by Mr Thabane who was not happy with election results.  A verdict to determine the rightful party NEC still pends in the courts of law.
