The Alliance has agreed on a programme to visit Malamulele as soon as possible to meet with all alliance structures in the area. This is informed by a desire to create stability and normalize the situation in Malamulele.

The meeting further agreed to postponed this weekend political activities in Mpumalanga which included the ANC 103 celebration rally as well as Joe Slovo lecture.

This decision was taken in order to allow political engagements among alliance components in the province, and avoid the repeat of what happened during the last Joe Slovo lecture in KwaNyamzana.

We appeal to our members of alliance structures to respect this decision and allow leadership to deal with the issues politically. We thank the provincial leadership of alliance in Mpumalanga for accepting this decision.
