'We're certain we will go to the 3rd of August united as a region'- ANC

African National Congress (ANC) spokesperson, Teboho Joala, says his party is still trying to confirm if the people wearing ANC t-shirts, protesting against the appointment of Thoko Didiza, are genuine ANC members.

ANC members allegedly overturned a Tshwane metro police car in the city centre of Pretoria, following the nomination of former public works minister as the mayoral candidate for City of Tshwane.

Joala says the ANC will go to the branches to explain its decision.

We do believe that once people have been made to understand that this is the decision, we will all rally together. There is not any other reason, except that it's a matter of preference.

Teboho Joala, ANC Tshwane spokesperson

Political analyst, Dr. Somadoda Fikeni says it would take the entire NEC, PEC and regional leaders to unite the City.

It's badly divided at the moment, and it will take ANC's conscious concerted efforts to deal with these divisions, if they are to even manage to excite and energise their base for the elections. But if they do not do that, unfortunately they might find itself below the 50% threshold.
