Countdown over – the 53rd African National Congress (ANC) Conference, which was scheduled to begin at 08:30 this morning, is yet to commence at University of the Free State in Mangaung.
ANC delegates from all over the country are still making their way to the main marquee where most of the sessions are going to take place.
The atmosphere on the campus has already shifted from slight motion towards a political buzz and commotion where delegates are expressing their views both visually and vocally.
We managed to have one-on-one conversations with a few of the delegates upon their arrival regarding their dress code and expectations.
Branch: Harry Gwala,Eshowe, KwaZulu-Natal
Dress code: “I just decided to dress traditionally for this occasion.”
Branch: Moses Mabida Region, KwaZulu-Natal
Conference Expectations: “We are expecting to be informed of the whereabouts of party is in terms of the resolutions that were set in 2007, Polokwane.”Add caption
Branch: Msabatha, Vryheid, KwaZulu-Natal
Conference Expectations: “I do not have much expectations, this conference is going to be a watershed one – Msholozi will emerge”
This lady was not willing to speak to anyone from the media, the only thing that she said was that, ”it is obvious who I am supporting”.
