Ezulweni Investment remains confident that the Constitutional Court will uphold previous rulings instructing the African National Congress (ANC) to settle the outstanding R102 million owed to the company. Eyewitness News reports that the printing and marketing firm produced election banners for the ANC in 2019, a service for which it has yet to receive payment. Having pursued legal action, Ezulweni Investment secured victories in both the Gauteng High Court and the Supreme Court of Appeal (SCA).
Despite these rulings, a court sheriff attempting to attach the ANC’s assets at Luthuli House on Monday faced resistance from security guards who denied entry into the building. Ezulweni Investment’s spokesperson, Peter Fernando, highlighted that the matter is a civil rather than a constitutional one, asserting, “This type of case is not supposed to be taken to the Constitutional Court but somehow they are trying to buy time I guess.”
Contrary to this stance, ANC national spokesperson Mahlengi Bhengu-Motsiri insisted that the party had received legal advice indicating a reasonable chance of success in the Constitutional Court, stating, “We are certainly convinced that this is a constitutional matter.” The suspension of attaching ANC equipment is in place pending the resolution of the party’s appeal to the apex court.
