The African National (ANC) elective Conference is almost upon us, but there is still a dispute with the ANC Free State.
The party is facing litigation that may see 402 delegates from the province being prevented from attending the party’s national elective conference this weekend.
Disgruntled members have asked their lawyers to file an urgent application against the provincial party’s leadership, saying 32% of branches in the province have lodged disputes and that the provincial leaders are in contempt of court by continuing with the conference underway.
