ANC policy conference cost R40 million: report
The African National Congress’ four-day-long policy conference has cost the party R40 million.
The Sunday Independent reports that this included the cost of hiring Gallagher convention centre in Midrand, accommodation, meals for 3 500 delegates, and their transport from various parts of the country.
Treasurer-general Mathews Phosa said the ANC had paid its bills "in cash". Delegates had paid a token contribution, but unnamed donors had been "generous".
About 5 000 delegates were expected to attend the party's elective conference in Mangaung in December, Phosa told the paper.
