ANC lose members in the EC
29 September 2012
The ANC has admitted that it has lost almost 40-thousand members in the Eastern Cape since January. Secretary general Gwede Mantashe says he is unable to elaborate on why the drop has occurred.
In KwaZulu-Natal, the membership grew by close to 90-thousand. Analysts say support for President Jaco Zuma is not as strong in the Eastern Cape as in KwaZulu-Natal.
The total party membership stands at one-point-two-million.
Almost three-thousand-700 branches have been given the go-ahead to nominate people for ANC leadership positions to be contested in Mangaung in December.
