Some members serve factions and even go as far as voting with opposition parties when their personal needs are not attended to, the party has said.
The newly elected ANC leadership in North West said they plan to deal with their own members who seem to care about their own needs instead of serving the people.
Over the weekend the party convened its second leg of its postponed elective conference and elected PEC additional members.
Newly elected chairman Nono Maloyi, an ally of RET strongman Supra Mahumapelo, said the crisis that the party had been experiencing in the province were the results of members who are driven by greed and self-importance.
He addressed the elective conference and said all of this should come to an end “now”.

“I was sitting in the ANC’s dispute resolution committee in the province. Some of the people who lodged disputes ahead of this conference were not members of the ANC.
“Some of them contested against the ANC in local government elections while others had a dual membership of the ANC and Patriotic Front,” Maloyi told delegates.
He said these members have proven to be only interested in themselves and “they don’t serve the ANC”.
“The only thing they do is to visit the ANC’s provincial and regional officers and demand certain government tenders,” Maloyi said.
He said a point in case was the conduct of ANC councillors who last week tried to vote with opposition parties to remove their own mayor Sebang Motlhabi in the Lekwa-Teemane municipality.
He said moving forward his leadership will get rid of such rogue elements.
The party’s organisational report delivered at the conference detailed how other party members belonged to opposition parties while holding ANC membership cards.
Acting secretary-general Paul Mashatile closed the conference which elected a few comrades aligned to President Cyril Ramaphosa into the PEC and called on delegates to do all they can to make sure the ANC wins the 2024 national government elections.
Mashatile, who eyes the post of deputy president but who could also be the dark horse for the post of President at party’s 55th elective congress in December 2022 where some delegates plan dump Ramaphosa “at the door”, said it can’t be correct that the ANC should share power with opposition parties.
“We cannot hand over power to others. People love the ANC, we cannot disappoint them,” he said.
