DURBAN - A consultative meeting by the ANC&39;s Moses Mabhida region in KwaZulu-Natal (KZN) descended into chaos on Monday as warring factions clashed.

The region was discussing the upcoming provincial elective conference.

It is alleged that some bodyguards drew guns on party members.

The party is said to be divided into two factions, one supporting President Cyril Ramaphosa, and the other supporting Nkosazana Dlamini-Zuma and former president Jacob Zuma.

The Public Order Police was deployed to Howick to defuse tensions.
