ANC Left Everyone Speechless After An Elective Candidate Almost Died At Conference - This Happened

According to reports, a poisoning during the ANC North West Provincial Elective Conference caused one delegate to become ill and depart the meeting. When the male delegate, aged 42, abruptly departed the meeting, everyone feared the food had been poisoned.

It was alleged by many delegates on Friday that members of the Interim Provincial Committee had installed themselves as voting delegates, causing the Mahikeng High Court to temporarily halt the disputed conference. An interim government was established by the party's national executive committee so that the province could hold elections.

The provincial leadership failed to meet the July deadline set by the ANC national office because the conference was repeatedly delayed owing to disagreements in each of the province's four regions.

Many internal ANC controversies have been shrouded in poisoning allegations.

Media access to the conferences' many commissions is strictly prohibited, thus precautions have been taken to ensure their safety.

A highly placed source told the Daily News, a sister publication of The Star, that some of Oscar Mabuyane's colleagues poisoned him during the ANC Eastern Cape Chairperson's electoral meeting.

For him, the decision to keep the information to themselves was proof that Mabuyane and his colleagues were right to keep it quiet.

He is currently resting comfortably at home; the accident was terrible, but he will make a full recovery. It seems that his fellow servicemen have begun to loathe him. Because of the near assassination attempt during the conference, he hasn't been seen since.

Motlalepula Rosho, the current MEC for finance, and Supra Mahumapelo, a former premier, are the two frontrunners for chair.
