MORE than 150 delegates are expected to gather at the Umzimkhulu FET Hall on Saturday and Sunday for the ANC Women’s League regional conference.

The delegates will come from the 40 branches­ which make up the Harry Gwala region­ of the women’s league. Nompumelelo Khathi, spokesperson for the league in the Harry­ Gwala region said they are also expecting five delegates from the provincial leadership of the league.

“Five delegates will be from the PEC, two from Cosatu and two from ANC Youth League in the region, one representative from traditional leadership and one representative from the religions fraternity,” she said.

She reiterated the league’s stance on rape and the abuse of women and children.

“We are against the ongoing abuse of women­, the growing rate of the rape of women. We will continue to add its voice against these social ills which are destroying the moral fibre of our community. We also condemn the xenophobic violence in the country because the most vulnerable immigrants suffer and those are the women and children.”

The conference will see the election of the five top leaders of the league’s regional structure.

Earmarked for the top five positions are Thembi Zikode from Ingwe for chairperson, Thembekile Shoba from Ubuhlebezwe for deputy chairperson, Nthuseng Duma of Umzimkhulu for secretary and Nonhlahla Mathanda of Kokstad for deputy chairperson
