Mzwandile Masina, the former Ekurhuleni City mayor has fired shots at those he said are threatening him within the ANC if he does not announce who is their candidate for presidency in December.

Masina is the one leading a campaign for Lebogang Maile, who belong to the Adiwele faction. He is up against Panyaza Lesufi for the ANC Gauteng chairperson position.

At the conference venue, there is heavy police presence, and Mzwandile Masina stated that it feels like they are in war zone, rather than just an ANC conference. He accuses outgoing ANC chairperson for Gauteng, David Makhura of using intimidation against his faction.

Lebogang Maile also recently shared the same sentiments citing that their faction is not in a hurry to announce who is their preferred ANC presidential candidate. He said there are also being threatened by some ANC comrades that if they do not announce a candidate, they will be investigated.

Maile said they are not scared of being investigated because they know that they are not "thieves".

Mzwandile Masina who has been campaigning for Lebogang Maile for the ANC chairperson position said he is not reporting to anyone, and no one will phone him to ask about anything concerning the conference.

"We don't have any anchors, the main person who is running the campaign of Maile is myself. I don't report to anybody and there's no one who can phone me and ask about what we are doing here.

We are not going to be told by anybody, neither are we going to be threatened. That is why one of our firm stance is that we are not going to announce anybody. We are not desperate. We are not afraid of any law enforcement agency that can be released against us," said.

Masina argues that the reason why they will not announce any candidate is because they are ready to lead ANC themselves.
