The ANC is too sick to go to the national conference‚ according to uMkhonto we Sizwe Veterans National Council. The veterans were addressing the media at Luthuli House on Friday when they described the ANC as "an athlete that is sick and unfit for the race he must compete in". "These five days starting [on Saturday] are just too few to resolve all the problems that are within Luthuli House‚" said Keith Mokoape. "However, we are not going to point fingers at anybody because we are committed to a successful conference."
