MAHIKENG - The ANC's National Working Committee (NWC) is in the North West Province attempting to find out the roots of the unrest plaguing the organisation there.
The NWC is meeting with the party's provincial executive.
There were violent protests in multiple North West towns after years of mismanagement under the premiership of Supra Mahumapelo.
National government then placed the province under administration, following Mahumapelo's removal.
The ANC visit is to try and salvage what could become an even messier situation.
ANC spokesperson Zizi Kodwa said the party has a constitutional responsibility arising from the conference with two mandates in terms of renewal impeding unity of the organisation.
Kodwa asserted that in preparing for the 2019 election, the ANC would be strengthening all their structures.
He said the NWC is in the North West to evaluate the state of the organisation and to see that the structures of the province are strong.
