ANC, MK Party in court over logo

The uMkhonto we Sizwe Party is again facing the ANC in court, this time over who owns the name and logo used by MK Party.

Members are at the KwaZulu-Natal High Court in Durban where the matter is being heard on Wednesday.

The ANC alleges that the newly established party has stolen its trademarks and symbols. 

MK Party KZN regional convener Bonginkosi Mngadi confirmed that its leader former President Jacob Zuma is also in court. 

"They are complaining about the emblem that it belongs to them. I wonder whether they have any grounds that speaks to that effects but we are going to wait for the court to see where we stand."

Meanwhile, the ANC failed in its bid to deregister Zuma's MK party before the Electoral court yesterday. 

The ANC had taken the MK Party and the IEC to the court saying the party's registration was unlawful because the MK Party submitted fraudulent signatures in its initial application to be registered as a political party.

Political analyst Levy Ndou says the ANC should have acted sooner. 

"The ANC should have in my view dealt with this issue at an earlier stage. Unfortunately they did not do so. In my view, this is good for peace in South Africa."
