CAPE TOWN - The ANC in the Western Cape is confident it will overcome its current financial woes, it said on Sunday.

The branch, believed to be in debt, owes the Cape Town International Conference Centre nearly R2 million, after it held its elective conference at the venue in February 2011.

The sheriff of the court attached furniture in the party's provincial office last week, as part of a court order attained by the convention centre.

ANC provincial treasurer Fezile Calana said the party has a plan to overcome its financial challenges and the "embarrassment" it faced when furniture was attached by the "DA [Democratic Alliance]-led convention centre".

During a general council meeting last weekend, Calana told ANC members that it was difficult to raise funds because the business community in the province "does not see any value in being associated with the ANC or donating to the ANC".
