The ANC in Msunduzi Municipality on Monday held a crisis meeting after members claiming to be aligned to the ANC’s radical economic transformation (RET) faction threatened to disrupt the party’s municipal elections campaign.

ANC leaders who were planning to embark on a door-to-door elections campaign in the Henley Dam area were forced to call it off after realising that people were planning to the block them from entering the area.

An ANC member who claims to be part of the organisation’s RET faction, told The Witness they would not allow the party’s leaders to campaign in their area until the faction’s grievances had been addressed.
