Kimberley – In a final bid to postpone the ANC provincial elective conference, a group of ANC members approached the powers that be at Luthuli House in Johannesburg on Monday to pull the plug on the conference until their disputes are resolved.

A members march was held outside the ANC offices in Du Toitspan Road last week, where up to 6 000 members claimed that they had been excluded from the database even though they were members in good standing.

Members also warned that there could be bloodshed if the conference went ahead as planned, from Thursday until Sunday in Colesberg.

“Things can take a nasty turn because the conference has been predetermined and delegates were hand-picked. Anything can happen because people are desperate to be elected into positions of power and gain access to state resources.”

They said they would disrupt the conference.
