ANC presidential hopeful Mathews Phosa has warned that the upcoming vote of no confidence against President Jacob Zuma had the potential to endanger the lives of some members of Parliament who are suspected to be preparing to vote against party wishes.

In a wide-ranging interview with City Press on Friday in East London, Phosa said there were already ANC corpses due to the power struggles and political killings in areas such as KwaZulu-Natal, Mpumalanga, North West and, more recently, the Eastern Cape.

He said the political killing fields of ANC members were rapidly expanding beyond KwaZulu-Natal and engulfing other provinces.
