Johannesburg - ANC party members should not choose leaders in the upcoming Mangaung conference because of their financial powers and seniority, party deputy secretary Thandi Modise said.

Modise was addressing delegates at the Limpopo provincial general council in Polokwane on Sunday.

She said lessons should be learned from the Polokwane conference and denounced the culture of using money to buy votes.

"If you have money, don’t buy ANC people, don’t buy Mangaung conference comrades," she said.

The conference should be used to revive the life of the African National Congress, and many ANC policies needed to be reviewed during the upcoming policy conference, she said.

"I don’t know how many policies we have had, but what I do know is that half of them need to be reviewed."

Modise said the ANC seemed to be scared to be discussing the land issue policy.

"It is a fact that black people are trying to acquire as much land as they can, it is not a sin. It is a fact that a willing seller willing buyer had instrumentally failed land restitution."

According to Modise the land issue among others was the cornerstone for the party to see another hundred years.
