WATCH | ANC heavyweights in East London
ANC National Executive Committee member Nathi Mthethwa was on the receiving end of a wrath by angry Scenary Park community members during his door to door campaign for voter registration.
The visit to the township is part of the ANC's Thuma Mina campaign to access progress of its deployees in government in the Eastern Cape.
Scenary Park resident Nolwandle Ulana fired the first salvo telling Mthethwa that ward 10 councillor Nicky Witbooi was failing the community.
"We voted for her to be in that position. Now she is only catering for her friends and busy with ANC factional battles not service delivery," said a visibly angry Ulana.
Most of the residents told Mthethwa of the plight of not having proper houses, electricity and access to water among others.
Other NEC members on the campaign trail include Bongani Bhongo, Collen Maine, Pemmy Majodina, Hlengiwe Mkhize, Jeff Radebe and Susan Shabangu.
The party president and the country's, Cyril Ramaphosa and other senior party leaders are expected to touch down in BCM on Sunday morning, while others would be conducting similar campaigns elsewhere across the province...
