It is a few weeks left before the highly-anticipated African National Congress Elective Conference.

Special Assignment will be putting the special focus on the burning issues facing Africa’s oldest political organisation.

This week the programme interviews ANC Secretary General Gwede Mantashe.

On Monday, the organisation dismissed reports that the possible removal of Mantashe was discussed at the party’s special National Executive Committee (NEC) meeting over the weekend.

The regular meeting of the NEC will be held in the next two weeks to finalise preparations for the December national elective conference.

Spokesperson Zizi Kodwa rejected the report as fake news.
