Cape Town - The Western Cape ANC, which was thrashed by the Democratic Alliance in last week's election, says it is working on plans to revitalise itself.

It said its provincial working committee (PWC) met on Tuesday and intended to thoroughly analyse the election results "as a basis for planning a way forward in the province".

The process of revitalising the organisation and building support would include a three-day lekgotla of the PWC in mid-May and a meeting of representatives of all branches.

It would also include a programme "to reach out to and mobilise all communities and sectors in the months ahead".

The party said it had suspended two local councillors who, it said, openly sided with the Congress of the People during the recent election campaign.

Phindile Booi and Xolani Nyanga would be charged and brought before a disciplinary committee.

Booi is councillor for Cape Town's ward 98, which includes the settlements of Harare and Mandela Park.

Nyanga is councillor for neighbouring ward 99.
