The provincial elective conference of the ANC in the Western Cape was once again delayed today.
The party has denied that this is because supporters of President Thabo Mbeki and former premier Ebrahim Rasool are boycotting the conference in the Cape Town international convention centre.
It is reported that the breakaway group is holding its own conference in Langa, making it impossible for the conference in the City to get underway. ANC leader Jacob Zuma was expected to address the elective conference
