Supporters of the National Democratic Convention (Nadeco) will look to the Pietermaritzburg high court today for a resolution of their political woes.

Judge Noel Hurt is expected to deliver judgment on yet another application against the party's interim leader, Ziba Jiyane.

The court has been asked to set aside Jiyane's decision to "unilaterally" dissolve the party's interim national executive committee (NEC), to reinstate the NEC and to stop Jiyane holding meetings without the consent of the interim NEC.

Judge Hurt earlier this week criticised the party's leaders for their inability to resolve their disputes through negotiation. They were also criticised for repeatedly returning to court at a cost of "R200000 a shot".

Nadeco is split into two factions - one headed by Jiyane and the other by rival Hawu Mbatha - which has resulted in their protracted court battle.
