ANC stalwarts announced a few months ago that they would hold their own national consultative conference ahead of the party’s upcoming elective conference in December.

They have previously written to the ANC leadership calling for the removal of President Jacob Zuma as well as a meeting to discuss what they call the crisis in the party.

Chikane also expressed how pleased he is with the fact that more people are starting to agree with the stalwarts.
