The ANC in the North West says not all branches were able to get their votes in on time and the announcement that they voted for Nkosazana Dlamini Zuma is not entirely true.

JOHANNESBURG - Delegates from several regions in the North West claim the results giving Nkosazana Dlamini Zuma their vote is not necessarily a true reflection of their decision on the next president of the African National Congress (ANC).

The delegates are gathered at the University of Johannesburg Soweto campus right now.

The North West’s Matlosana sub-region members say they have asked their representatives who have been registered to vote at Nasrec to raise their concerns about which presidential hopeful will be voted for on their behalf.

They say not all branches were able to get their votes in on time and therefore the announcement that the province voted for Dlamini-Zuma is not entirely true.

The ANC North West’s Tshidiso Ramphele says they are trying to find a way to ensure that their concerns are raised and addressed during credentials.

“We have exhausted avenues in ensuring that problems of our members who have been disputed are solved. Processes have been followed, but in the organisation usually when there are problems like that, there will be a right platform which will emerge during the plenary when credentials are raise. Those problems will be raised there.”

The North West’s Bojanala region will not be able to vote.
