Tembeka Ngcukaitobi for the ANC had told the court irregularities at branches do not affect the regional conference.

Terry Motau for the applicants, maintained that they lodged the dispute with the ANC national and provincial office in December 2016, and eight months later nothing was done to resolve their dispute, instead organisational processes were unfolding including branch general meeting that led to the regional conference.
