- The ANC has condemned a viral poster purporting to be an election slate for the 2022 national conference.

- The poster is the work of those seeking to divide the ANC, the party has said.
The ANC has condemned a poster purporting to be an election slate for its 2022 national conference.
In a statement issued on Saturday, the party said the "fake and fictional" poster can only be the work of "wedge drivers who derive pleasure from seeing a divided ANC".
Party spokesperson Dakota Legoete said:
Legoete said preparations were not yet underway for the 2022 elective conference.
"It is worth noting that the process towards the  national conference has not even started. Accordingly, branches and other structures of the ANC have not even had the opportunity to discuss preparations for 2022."
The party has called on its members to "remain vigilant" against those looking to create division within its ranks.
"This negative tendency, which is alien to the Congress movement, must be nipped in the bud.
"The ANC calls on all its members to remain vigilant against wedge drivers and agent provocateurs who are hell-bent on sowing divisions among our leaders and members and thus weakening our glorious movement and undermining its capacity to lead the socio-economic transformation of our society."
