ANCWL hosts 12th National Conference
Nearly 3,000 delegates will attend the three day meeting event in Pretoria.
IRENE, PRETORIA - The ANC Women's League 12th National Conference kicked off in Irene, East of Pretoria, with nearly 3,000 delegates attending the three day meeting.
Issues expected to be discussed include women equality, domestic violence and when the league will put forward a female candidate for president for the country.
Delegates are filling up the conference hall at the Saint George Hotel, where President Jacob Zuma was scheduled to address the gathering, but changed his plan at the last minute.
Zuma will only be joining the conference after his question and answer session in Parliament this afternoon.
The league's spokesperson Edna Molewa said "We do believe that it's going to be a very good conference given the level of preparation."
League president Angie Motshekga is expected to deliver a political report this morning.
