CAPE TOWN - The African National Congress (ANC) in the Western Cape says it will continue to work with local NGO Ses'kona to target pressing issues affecting the community.

Despite a strained relationship with the controversial civil rights group in recent months, the party believes they can set aside their differences to improve conditions in the province.

The party is holding its lekgotla in Cape Town this weekend.

The ANC says issues including youth unemployment, housing and black economic empowerment are on the agenda.

Provincial secretary Songezo Mjongile said, "We've always made ourselves available with Ses'khona so that issues like land and sanitation are addressed instead of badmouthing each other."
