Delegates at the ANC Youth League’s congress in Midrand are alleging that the two candidates for the presidency of the organisation have tried to buy votes from some of the 5 000 people attending the meeting.
Julius Malema is expected to retain his position as president, after gaining support from all the provinces ahead of the congress.
Gauteng League chairperson and the province's sport MEC Lebogang Maile is expected to be the only challenger for the post.
Delegates are expected to vote for the top office bearers this afternoon.
