Mantashe to meet #OccupyLuthuliHouse leaders
ANC Secretary General Gwede Mantashe is to meet party members behind the #OccupyLuthuliHouse protest today.
The group clashed with another , who said they were defending the ANC headquarters last week.
The protesters are demanding the resignation of President Jacob Zuma and the entire party national executive committee.
The #OccupyLuthuliHouse campaign is concerned that the ANC is losing support because of corruption.
They also criticize the governing party for using state resources to protect president Zuma.
The protestors believe the ANC lost support during the recent local government elections because it has grown arrogant and has allowed the president to violate the constitution
Last week Mantashe dismissed the group as disgruntled and unruly ANC members.
Some ANC veterans and prominent leaders have publicly called on the president to step down over abuse of power and corruption.
Others are calling for a conference that will elect a new leadership which will take the party forward.
