Bloemfontein - The lead-up to the ANC's last national conference five years ago was fraught with divisions, President Jacob Zuma said on Sunday.

"The road to Polokwane was full of division and turbulence," he said during his political report.

"It was necessary that we start healing the organisation and working for unity after the conference."

Zuma became president of the ANC at the Polokwane conference, defeating former president Thabo Mbeki.

He said the new leadership elected at Polokwane had to go to each province and heal the divisions.

"Some successes were made, while some provinces still have pockets of factionalism and disunity," he said.
