This follows some leaders deciding to boycott campaigns and others choosing to help those who have decided to run for office independently.
ANC provincial executive committee member Bethwell Mthethwa expressed concern about the situation, saying they were in serious danger if party leaders and members continued to divide.
Mthethwa was campaigning in Nomsiyane, Jozini today and ANC volunteers turned out in large numbers.
"I am saddened that our chairperson, Sihle Zikalala, said that when he was campaigning in the province, a few volunteers came. This is a disgrace to Umkhanyakude and Jozini.
The ANC in Umkhanyakude has been embroiled in a civil war that has disrupted the running of the Umkhanyakude municipality.
Its councilors eventually turned to each other and the IFP boycotted the ousting of ANC mayor Solomon Mkhombo and the replacement of IFP mayor Tim Moodley.
Not only did the conference take place but the results are being debated and some are threatening to go to court.
Mthethwa said he was saddened that they had worked so hard to oust the IFP from Umkhanyakude but the disagreement and failure to put the ANC first had cost them the council.
"We are in great danger of the IFP taking away municipalities because the people do not get along.
