He was giving an update on Monday afternoon on behalf of the ANC's peace and security sub-committee at Luthuli House.
“We are ready for a conference. We will do whatever it takes that that conference succeeds. Because the success of that conference is not only for the ANC, but it’s for the people of this country.”
Thousands of delegates are expected to descend on Nasrec, south of Johannesburg, for the election of a new president and party leadership.
Mahlobo says the ANC will be under close scrutiny this weekend.
“Even our neighbours and the continent are watching us as the ANC. And the ANC has never failed to respond when we are actually being put under a microscope. We are confident men and women of the secret services will be able to make us proud.”
Mahlobo’s warned that those who misbehave won’t be permitted into the conference precinct.
“Members of the ANC who are coming to that conference they must come and show that there is maximum unity and discipline because if people are not disciplined they will never be allowed to be actually closer to the precinct of our conference.”
