South African Ruling Party's Conference Called Off After Chaos

There was chaos at the gathering when the party's national chairperson Gwede Mantashe tried to address delegates, but he was drowned out in song by a group singing songs in support of ex-president Jacob Zuma. The conference was supposed to have been a rerun of a previous elective conference - the results of which were nullified - but was changed to a consultative conference instead after disgruntled members obtained an urgent court interdict against the conference.
