President Jacob Zuma met with all the ANC presidential candidates out of concern for the ANC, SABC reported.
In a recorded interview, Zuma said: "We had a good meeting. I'd invited them to come. This is after I had first raised the matter with the officials of the ANC, taking into account the activities of the campaigning that is being done within the organisation and what is happening, and taking also the example of what comrades have done in other conferences in the past," he said.
I was worried that the coming conference which is being looked at very seriously not just by the ANC but by the world. The ANC is one of the big orgs in the world, people look at it.
He did not say what these concerns were.
