Durban – In a show of solidarity on Thursday, the ANC and its alliance partners in KwaZulu-Natal announced that its structures would be "working together" after glaring tensions emerged in recent weeks.

The ANC, together with the SACP, Cosatu and Sanco, said they had met on Monday and engaged in a "frank, robust and honest engagement on issues that undermined alliance unity".

The alliance's problems came to a head after the killing of two people in Inchanga during an SACP public meeting on January 24.

A branch executive committee member from the Inchanga ANC is among the five people arrested for the murders.

ANC provincial secretary Super Zuma said the alliance partners also addressed the issue of booing at public events.

"We are going to engage in our structures to stop this. We will go to our people and say this is what you can do and what you cannot. We are calling on all the members in our structures to participate fully along ANC guidelines and display respect."

Zuma added that the party alliances would engage over the Inchanga matter once the police had completed their investigation.

"We have requested a report from the region and will inform the media and the public on the processes once we know exactly what is going on. That matter should be allowed to be investigated. If discrepancies are found, the organisation will take action."
