ANC debates having units at education, work places
The ANC is debating having "units" at tertiary institutions and at work places, the party's KwaZulu-Natal secretary said on Saturday.
Sihle Zikalala said the measure was one of those being discussed at the ANC's provincial conference in Newcastle as the delegates debated on how to rejuvenate branches.
He said that the idea of having "units" was not aimed at displacing the Congress of SA Trade Unions.
Earlier it emerged that the estimated 2,000 delegates at the conference unanimously decided on Friday night to retain the same leadership led and forgo voting.
However voting for additional provincial executive committee (PEC) members would go ahead on Saturday.
Zweli Mkhize would remain in his position as chairman. Deputy chairman Willie Mchunu, secretary Sihle Zikalala, deputy secretary Nomusa Dube and treasurer Peggy Nkonyeni would also stay in their positions.
The congress was in a closed session on Saturday where PEC member Senzo Mchunu was giving a presentation on strategy and tactics.
The delegates would break up into commissions later on Saturday and discuss the policy proposals that had been tabled.
