The ANC in Limpopo yesterday said it was looking forward to hosting the party's national conference in December.

Cassel Mathale, the ANC's provincial secretary, said the people of Limpopo were happy to be hosting the party's last conference before its 100th birthday in 2012

Mathale said: "We are ready to receive the more than 5000 delegates and invited guests to Limpopo in December.

"We urge our people to be as hospitable as possible and not take this as an isolated incident. Limpopo is going to play host to other equally important events, such as the 2010 Soccer World Cup," he said.

"The conference is obviously an important event for Limpopo because this is the first time since the ANC was formed in 1912 that the province has hosted a gathering of this magnitude," Mathale said.

He said the province had produced the highest number of voters for the ANC in the first democratic elections in 1994.

"Now, 13 years into our nation's democracy, this conference will determine and shape the future [of the ANC] for the next five years.

"The people of Limpopo are looking forward to hosting an event at which the future of the country will also be decided," Mathale said.

He said Limpopo had made good progress in ensuring that the ANC in Limpopo began discussing and making inputs for presentation at the ANC policy conference, scheduled for June.

He said the nomination of the party's office bearers would begin after the policy conference.

Mathale cautioned against media reports that allude to tensions in the ANC.

"The conference is obviously going to be an interesting one for the ANC family, the country and the entire world, particularly with regard to the direction the ANC will be taking in the next five years," Mathale said.
