Mantashe addresses Mangaung

2012-12-17 08:19

ANC Secretary-General, Gwede Mantashe has warned party members who think they can hold leadership into ransom just because they campaigned and voted for them. Watch. WATCH

Bloemfontein - A jovial Rural Development and Land Affairs Minister Gugile Nkwinti said on Monday he was optimistic the ANC's 53rd elective conference would go well.

"We had a great day yesterday [Sunday] and had good reports from President Jacob Zuma and [ANC secretary general] Gwede Mantashe. I think today will go well," Nkwinti said outside the plenary venue.

The five-day conference, being held at the University of Free State in Mangaung, started on Sunday. The ANC had to adjourn the conference on Sunday night after arguments over credentials of delegates.

As a result, nominations of the party's top six leaders were put on hold.

Nkwinti declined to comment when asked about the problems with credentials.

City Press reported on Monday that the deadlock was reached at about 01:00, after several hours of discussion. Provincial secretaries apparently refused to sign off on the credentials report, which determines voting eligibility of delegates from the provinces.

Delegates were expected to continue discussing the matter on Monday.
