WC and Limpopo ANC ready to nominate
Limpopo ANC will take security measures to ensure their nomination meetings are not disrupted.
JOHANNESBURG - The Limpopo ANC said on Wednesday it was taking extra security precautions to ensure its nominations conference is not disrupted on Wednesday.
It was unable to go through with it at the weekend after chaos erupted.
A group of people apparently wearing Jacob Zuma t-shirts disrupted the region's provincial general council on Friday, where nominations were due to be made.
The Limpopo province is seen to be split between supporters of President Zuma and deputy president Kgalema Motlanthe.
Spokesperson for the provincial party, Makonde Mathivha, said they had an "elaborate plan" in place to ensure the conference proceeded without problems.
Meanwhile, the Western Cape ANC's provincial secretary, Songezo Mjongile, is also confident their conference will go well.
"Previously there were problems around the verification of branches…which unfortunately spilled over to the meeting, and the meeting stalled."
The North West ANC announced on Wednesday it was backing Zuma after it too missed Friday's deadline to submit nominations on who they want to lead the party.
Zuma has been nominated by six provinces, while Motlanthe has been nominated by just Gauteng.
The ANC will hold its national elective conference in December in Mangaung where it will discuss its policies and nominate its top six leaders.
