Johannesburg - The North West ANC has had to delay the start of its nomination conference on Friday to sort out the issue of where the conference would be held.

"Provincial executive committee officials are meeting with the NEC [national executive committee] deployees to discuss the matter," spokesperson Kenny Morolong said.

This was after the provincial executive committee (PEC) complained that another nomination conference had been scheduled to take place in Mafikeng.

"Ignore this fallacious information, as it is intended at confusing the entire membership of the ANC in the North West and [to] project our provincial leadership in a bad light."

Morolong said the official conference would be held at the Cosmo Hall at Hartbeespoort Dam.

It was supposed to start at 9am, but had been put on hold.

The African National Congress in the North West is divided over who they support for the position of party leader.

According to the Business Day, on Friday provincial chairperson Supra Mahumapelo and provincial secretary Kabelo Mataboge, who were leaders of opposing factions, disagreed about the venue for the conference.

Chief campaigner

Mahumapelo's group preferred the hall at Hartbeespoort Dam, while those supporting Mataboge were pushing for the conference to be held at the Civic Centre in Mafikeng.

Mahumapelo has reportedly been the chief campaigner for President Jacob Zuma’s second term bid in Mangaung.

Mataboge has been associated with the group calling for Deputy President Kgalema Motlanthe to take the top job.

Mataboge was shot at outside his home in Mmabatho on Friday morning, the ANC in the province said.

This was confirmed by North West police, who said Mataboge was about to open the gate to his home at 03:00 when the shots were fired by an unknown attacker.

He was not injured.
