Former president Jacob Zuma is reportedly to blame for the failed African National Congress (ANC) consultative conference in KwaZulu-Natal which was called off due to disruptions.

According to The Sunday Times, Zuma went back on his word about a settlement deal that was initiated by ANC President Cyril Ramaphosa between warring factions in the province.

The conference was called off yesterday after ANC Chairperson Gwede Mantashe was heckled during his address to delegates on Friday.

The paper also reports that Zuma wants the KZN leadership that was elected at the nullified 2015 conference to be re-elected.
