During a meeting to discuss the upcoming provincial elective conference in the Moses Mabhida region, warring factions of the ANC party in KwaZula-Natal clashed.
It is alleged that some bodyguards drew guns on party members, after tensions rose due to claims of "gate-keeping".
Briefly.co.za gathered the party is divided between supporters of President Cyril Ramaphosa, and those of Nkosazana Dlamini-Zuma and former president Jacob Zuma.
Reports have surfaced that Zuma is attempting to undermine Ramaphosa's hold on the ANC in KwaZulu-Natal, but spokespersons for the party have said that the reports are nonsense.
If tensions continue to rise, there are fears that violence will erupt between party members.
The Public Order Police was deployed to Howick to defuse tensions.
