The ANC was locked in a dispute on Wednesday at the 54th ANC National conference over the issue of 68 missing votes. The votes could have impacted the position of secretary general which was won by Ace magashule with a narrow margin of just 24 votes over Senzo Mchunu.
The so-called 'Nasrec 68' have demanded that their votes be considered in the count for the top office-bearers of the ruling party.
Asked what solution would suit the 68, Selepe said he has been instructed to tell the ANC to do the right thing.
