ANC's FS conference starts after delays

2012-06-22 14:18

Parys - The Free State ANC elective conference started after a delay of several hours in Parys on Friday.

Delegates stood for several hours in the cold wind for party officials to put the final touches to the venue for the conference.

The conference is being held at the former Arwa factory in the industrial area of Parys.

Delegates were allowed in at around 13:00 on Friday under strict security.

The identity tags of party members and media were checked more than once by marshalls a short distance from the gate to the factory floor.

Once inside, the smallish group of delegates started singing ANC songs.

Free State ANC chairperson Ace Magashule sat inside the hall and chatted to party officials and elders.

It was not sure how many delegates were attending the conference and how many would be voting delegates.

Local party officials said the figures would be made available to the media later.

    Cannot run a conference - but they sure as hell believe they can run a country!

    Its kind of fitting that they are having the conference in what was once possibly a well run factory employing several hundred people.

    They couldn't organize a booze-up in a brewery unless somebody, preferably a taxpayer, held their hands and showed them how to lift a glass. Bunch of dumb dumbs shouldn't be allowed out unaccompanied.

    What a total disgrace these people's no longer a laughing mater but one that any human with common sense would be ashamed to be part of.

    The plus side is...the more they show their incompetence the more they will loose support for the anc(hopefully)
