ANC general secretary Gwede Mantashe and Cosatu boss Zwelinzima Vavi used a congress of a union as a battleground to widen the rift between the two former political allies.
ANC MP Jackson Mthembu was discharged from hospital on Wednesday morning following treatment after he was shot in a robbery, the ruling party said.
THE ANC on Tuesday denied assertions made by Numsa that the poor and working class had lost faith in the party.
The National Union of Metalworkers (Numsa) is going ahead with its plan to form a political party to contest power against the ANC.
A MONTH ago Gauteng members of the ANC held their provincial conference as usual every fourth year, but there was nothing usual about the 12th conference.
The ruling party was not in favour of the National Union of Metalworkers of SA being expelled from Cosatu, deputy ANC president Cyril Ramaphosa said this afternoon.
FORMER ANC spokesman Jackson Mthembu is in a stable condition in a hospital intensive care unit (ICU) after being shot at the weekend.
A new union expected to challenge the dominance of the ANC-aligned Congress of South African Trade Unions (Cosatu), is preparing its formation.
