ANC delegates sleep

After a long hot first day at the ANC's national elective conference a few delegates were photographed sleeping. See the pictures from Mangaung.

Bloemfontein - African National Conference delegates were making their way to the University of Free State campus on Monday for the second day of the party's elective conference.

In the morning heat they walked about two kilometres across the campus to the plenary venue, without singing and chanting as they did on the first day of the conference on Sunday.

"We will see what happens today... I am hoping for everything to go well and on time today," said Lwazi Njoko, a delegate from the Eastern Cape.

After Sunday's dinner break African National Congress treasurer general, Mathews Phosa, presented his financial report to the conference.

Delegates also discussed credentials, but decided at around midnight to put this on hold following a dispute.

Nominations for the ANC's top six officials, which had been scheduled for Sunday night, had also been delayed until Monday.
