The ANC has not been able to consistently apply their campaign rules at the party's elective conference, says Mail&Guardian journalist Govan Whittles.
Many ANC delegates have been brandishing campaign T-shirts and posters declaring their preferred presidential candidate, while other supporters have been singing songs of support.
This is despite an earlier party resolution to ban campaign T-shirts and posters due to their divisive nature.
Whittles joined political analyst Karima Brown to discuss this and other issues unfolding at the conference.
