Johannesburg - Around 400 African National Congress delegates are expected to gather at the Moses Mabhida stadium for the Ethekwini elective conference on Saturday, the party said.

The conference, which was set to begin at 09:00, was yet to officially get underway, provincial secretary Super Zuma said.

It would be opened by the provincial chairperson Sihle Zikalala.

This is the region's fourth attempt at convening the conference.

eThekwini is the ANC’s biggest region and has been marred by controversy over the party failing to convene a successful conference.

The highly contested regional chairperson position is being fought between eThekwini mayor James Nxumalo and councillor Zandile Gumede, both members of the eThekwini executive council.
