Pretoria - The ANC in Tshwane condemned the storming of its office in Pretoria on Monday by a group it says claims to represent unhappy members.

“The actions and disruptions... (which) included physical and verbal assault of ANC employees and staff is a demonstration of the desperate measures employed to undemocratically unseat the current ANC leadership,” regional chairman Kgosientso Ramokgopa said in a statement.

He said the group was claiming that African National Congress members in the region were unhappy with the audit of branches ahead of the party's regional conference, which is scheduled for October this year.

Over the past two weeks the ANC in Tshwane had hosted more than 35 branch meetings where nominations for the regional executive committee were finalised and inputs for the programme were made.

Regional secretary Paul Mojapelo said the ANC in the region was open to discussion with any of its branches.

“Whilst the ANC remains open to... every member's dissatisfaction with the internal processes, the action of these individuals who are not ANC members and recently expelled from the ANC deserves the harshest condemnation and disassociation,” he said.
