Ruling on PANGU executives next month

Party president Patrick Pundao and General Secretary of the Party, Morris Tovebae, are in court over allegations they dishonestly applied K50,000, monies belonging to the party.

The money they allegedly misused is said to be nomination fees for candidates contesting the 2017 National General Election under the party's banner.
