African National Congress (ANC) branch members in the Free State’s Mangaung Region say they need to hold branch general meetings to rebuild their structures. This is the build-up to the provincial elective conference, which is scheduled for June.
The ANC Women’s League and ANC Youth League structures marched to the ANC provincial office where they handed over a list of grievances regarding the running of the party in the province.
They are accusing the Interim Provincial Committee (IPC) of overstaying their welcome.
The ANC members say they want to go to the conferences as soon as possible.
“They do not have numbers, they collapse the municipalities. They want to collapse the provincial government which we deemed as ANC branches as not fair. We are the youth league, we are standing up now. All these IPC members IRP members are actually useless within their positions. They must leave,” says an ANC member.
“We say we are ready to go to the conference. Please upper structure stop this nonsense you are doing. We are sick and tired now,” adds another ANC member.
