JOHANNESBURG - The African National Congress (ANC) expects to have its political school built in the next few months.

It admitted on Sunday that it had run into problems with construction because the building site is located on a national heritage site.

The school, which is aimed at educating ANC members on the principles, values and policies of the party, is planned to be built near the Vredefort Dome, in the North West.

The _City Press _reported on Sunday the party's current head of political education, Tony Yengeni, said that planned construction of the school was in chaos.

However ANC spokesperson Keith Khoza said working around the natural heritage site requirements is complex and that political education will continue.

"In terms of the political school programme, education happens at different locations at different levels."
