A video revealing the violence that erupted at the weekend during the African National Congress's (ANC) elective conference in the Eastern Cape has gained traction on social media.
The footage posted by local news agency the Daily Dispatch emerged on Sunday.
In the video, delegates can be seen flinging plastic chairs and punching each other as chaos erupted in the conference centre.
At least 8 ANC delegates have reportedly been hospitalised after sustaining injuries during the brawl.
Talk radio producer Jonathan Fairbairn shared a number of funny suggestions to avoid a repeat of events at the national conference in December.
