Gauteng police on high alert ahead of ANC results

JOHANNESBURG – Police in Gauteng have been placed on high alert pending the release of the results of the ANC national conference at Nasrec in Soweto.

Gauteng police commissioner Lieutenant-General Deliwe de Lange has issued a communication stating that all operational personnel in Gauteng are to remain ready for deployment to handle any eventualities in Gauteng pending the outcome of the elective process.

“All commanders must inform all members to remain operationally prepared to deploy at any given time. All commanders are expected to initiate operational readiness with immediate effect."

De Lange says all additional deployments that will be mobilised will enhance visibility and policing in the province.

After lengthy delays the party announced nominations for its top 6 candidates on Sunday evening.

Voting was set to start at 10pm on Sunday but the ANC has confirmed it will in fact begin on Monday morning.

The nominees for president are Nkosazana Dlamini Zuma and Cyril Ramaphosa.

The official nominations, announced by an election official, come after months of campaigning that's set the stage for the start of voting by 4,776 delegates in the tight race between the two candidates.
