Mantashe disappointed in those pushing rumours of his possible removal

Gwede Mantashe Secretary General of the African National Congress addresses the media during a press briefing at Luthuli House in Johannesburg

ANC secretary-general Gwede Mantashe said a "special dispensation" may be required to allow the province to conclude the nomination process.

South Africa's ruling African National Congress (ANC) on Tuesday expressed concern about the instability in Zimbabwe while dismissing intervention proposals.

The NEC meeting, which is now underway in Irene, Pretoria, is meant to discuss the party's looming elective conference, the organisational report to be presented at that conference, and the September Eastern Cape elective congress.

At least 5,240 voting delegates are expected at the much awaited conference in Johannesburg in mid-December. 90% of such voting delegates will be delegates elected at properly quorate Branch General Meetings (BGM).

The NEC reflected at length on the Eastern Cape 8th Provincial Conference. KwaZulu-Natal and the Eastern Cape are also engaged in court battles over their respective provincial congresses. The REC was however expected to continue doing its work in all other areas, including the overseeing of BGMs as we prepare for Conference.

They also claim that the conference did not legitimately elect a new leadership and they want the conference overturned.

Regarding KwaZulu-Natal's lower South Coast region, which has emerged as backers of Deputy President Cyril Ramaphosa, Mantashe said the NEC received the region's report on its appeal against its disbandment by the KZN Provincial Executive Committee (PEC).

A task team of seven members - four from the national executive committee (NEC) and three "technical" staffers - were assigned to the province to deal with the appeal.

Mantashe said he's disappointed in those that pushed rumours that his possible removal was discussed at the ANC special NEC meeting at the weekend.

At the meeting, the NEC resolved to uphold the decision of the PEC.

The NEC team includes Sbu Ndebele, Rejoice Mabudafhasi, Joyce Moloi-Moropa and Sdumo Dlamini.
