ANC 2017 Elective Conference

[LISTEN] No clarity if ANC Free State delegates will attend national conference

There is no certainty that Free State delegates will attend this week's national elective conference as disgruntled party members prepare to head to the Bloemfontein High Court to challenge Monday's provincial conference.

The group will attempt to nullify the gathering, and will interdict all provincial delegates from attending the national event.

Eyewitness News reporter Clement Manyathela is in the Free State.

The Free State ANC was really trying so hard to make sure they covered their tracks cause they were anticipating court action.

Clement Manyathela, EWN reporter

What happened yesterday, which was bizarre, is they say we went and we re ran these 29 branches, what they did was demarcate and separate them from the rest of the delegates that were there electing leaders and we asked, but if you are so sure that you have followed every single law and convened these 29 branches constitutionally why go through the trouble of separating them?

Clement Manyathela, EWN reporter

They know that this conference shouldn't have sat... I suppose on Thursday when those disgruntled members go to court we will have an idea on how things are looking for this PEC and whether they will be attending conference this weekend.
