“We are trying to manage tolerance among our members and structures because the major problem is that they have a criminal element,” Legoete said.
“ In the secretariat meeting one of the items will be the question of these killings. The fact that it’s an agenda item shows we are concerned about these developments because the loss of one life is a loss too many, and we can’t say things are normal under such circumstances.”
The meeting was expected to be led by acting secretary-general Jessie Duarte.
On Monday Duarte told TimesLIVE at the launch of party’s elections manifesto that they were going all out to win back Tshwane.
She said the brutal killing of an ANC councillor in Tshwane was therefore a huge concern for the party because it had to convince residents to give it an overwhelming majority.
“That’s why we don’t want to leave anything to chance,” Legoete said regarding Tshwane.
“We want to make sure we pull up our socks, including at the level of safety, for all candidates, all volunteers, all leaders of the ANC and members of the public, because any election violence or any form of violence is not good for the stability of the country”.
