But party says the intimidation at ANC branch general meetings is not widespread

“The ANC, MK Military Veterans Association, ANC Youth League and ANC Women’s League leadership in Gauteng have amicably dealt with all incidents of disruption, violence, assaults and intimidation in... branches at Ekurhuleni, Sedibeng, and the West Rand,” Gauteng ANC spokesman Dumisa Ntuli said in a statement.

“The ANC Gauteng is also dealing with all complaints of intimidation, procedures flouted, and incidents of assaults and disruption of meetings.” 

Ntuli said most of the incidents had been resolved.

Disciplinary measures would be taken against those who were responsible.

“The ANC will take action against ill-disciplined members who disrupt meetings, assault fellow members and intimidate others for nomination of leaders towards the Mangaung conference.” 

An armed gang reportedly stormed an ANC branch meeting in Ekurhuleni and allegedly threatened to shoot anti-Zuma supporters.

Eyewitness Sbongile Ntlonti said the gang — nine men and a woman — intimidated branch members at Rondebult, near Spruitview, The Star newspaper reported.

This was because they believed these members wanted to nominate Deputy President Kgalema Motlanthe as the ruling party’s new leader, instead of President Jacob Zuma.

The pro-Zuma group claimed they were from the ANC’s Umkhonto we Sizwe Military Veterans’ Association.

Beside these few reports of violence at BGMs, Ntuli said over 300 branches in the province had held successful meetings, and the provincial nomination conference would take place as planned.

During the meetings branches nominated their preferred candidates for the ANC elective conference.

"During the meetings branches nominated their preferred candidates for the ANC elective conference"

this kind of intimidations fuels by the coward nomination process the ANC is using. they do not want to usse secret votes so that they can see who is voting who and not voting for who.

they use an akward voting called show of hand. what is that? they actually not nominating or voting this PPL, they impose leadership. For Zuma, we voted him out of sympathy.

I just hope Ntuli's assertion is not an empty pledge intended to hoodwink the public to supporting the party in the forthcoming elections. We are now more used to empty promises and cover ups from the party its very disgusting. The barbaric behavior of some members in the ANC 'S meetings have been going for a long time now with little or no visible action being taken against the perpetrators. It has reduced the party to a horrible joke in the eyes of decent South Africans. The pledge is in my view a little too late as I have personally lost faith in the party and would rather vote for the opposition. There are just a lot of scandals and in-competencies that are rocking the party. Can the spokesperson please just show me the job creation program me of the party and the activities that they have undertaken to arrest unemployment among other things? One major activity to create jobs Government could do is to create a business fund (of say R15 billion rand) and the money proportionally distributed to all the municipalities in the country. The municipalities would have to provide training to aspiring business people who after completing the course would be advised on the type of business projects they could start. Hence the money should be used to buy them the equipment for starting businesses. If for instance one wants to venture to the business of growing avocado trees and selling fruits, he should be given everything he needs, e.g land, crops etc. I know some will fail but I am certain a lot could succeed and hence create jobs for others.
