Verification of ANC delegates at the party's Mpumalanga nomination conference was underway on Thursday afternoon.

The process would be followed by the official nomination and voting for preferred leaders for the African National Congress's elective conference in Mangaung next month.

A team from the party's election commission, led by Khehla Shubane, was in charge of the process.

A total of 469 delegates from across the province, a stronghold of President Jacob Zuma, had converged on the Steve Tshwete municipality's banquet hall in Middelburg for the conference. - Sapa
