ANC Limpopo to hold another conference
The ANC in Limpopo will hold another nominations conference this week following disruptions.
LIMPOPO - The Limpopo African National Congress (ANC)'s nomination conference will now be held outside the province next week amid security concerns.
The conference was stormed by a group that was believed to be President Jacob Zuma supporters on Friday night.
It is alleged that former provincial ANC secretary Joe Maswanganye was among the ringleaders who stirred trouble.
The Limpopo branch's spokesperson Makonde Mathivha said the venue was damaged when the clashes broke out.
He said former ANC members led the assault.
"When we arrived the people there were chanting, wearing t-shirts that have the face of the president [Zuma] and some of them were former leaders of the province."
The Western Cape is still outstanding with its nominations alongside Limpopo.
KwaZulu-Natal, Mpumalanga, the Free State and the Eastern Cape have all thrown their weight behind Zuma.
Gauteng is backing Deputy President Kgalema Motlanthe.
Both the North West and Western Cape said they will hold their conferences on Sunday.
The ANC is preparing for its elective conference in Manguang which will take place in 15 December.
