2012-06-22 11:47

Johannesburg - The Free State ANC provincial conference will start on Friday.

The event was scheduled to run from Friday to Sunday in Parys in the northern Free State, provincial African National Congress spokesperson William Bulwana said on Wednesday.

This would happen despite two of the five provincial regions not having held their regional conferences yet.

The provincial conference had been postponed three times since last month. The two regional conferences that did take place - at Fezile Dabi and Lejweleputswa - were held amid claims that structures were being manipulated.

ANC members from the Free State protested outside party headquarters Luthuli House in Johannesburg earlier this month, urging party leaders to solve grievances in their province.

Free State ANC chairperson Ace Magashule was expected to be challenged for the post by former economic development MEC and party treasurer Mxolisi Dukwana. Dukwana, who was fired from the provincial executive in a provincial cabinet reshuffle in February.

    Can the ANC not do ANYTHING on time - even organise their own conferences? And they want respect as a government?

    Its true, the ANC just cant organize anything. They never start or arrive on time. Can somebody please explain to these arrogants that being late or keeping people waiting is very bad manners. Did they ask angie to organize this conference??? sorry she was too busy running around delivering text books, hence the delay.
