JOHANNESBURG - African National Congress (ANC) members need to go to the elective conference in Mangaung in December as a united front, ANC Women's League (ANCWL) president Angie Motshekga said on Sunday.

Motshekga was speaking at the League's ninth Gauteng conference at the Turffontein Race Court in Johannesburg.

She said seven provinces in the country had already nominated the current leadership to stay as it is.

Motshekga said ANCWL members should be careful which leader they nominate as they head to Manguang.

She said seven provinces want the President Jacob Zuma to remain as the party's leader.

Using an analogy, the ANCWL leader said members should decide now whether they want to be the "bus driver or the conductor" as they elect a new leader.

The ANC is expected to vote for a new president in Manguang in December.
