Listen to the conversation below:
We are going to see the ANC losing one or two big metros this year. They might not get Nelson Mandela Bay, Tshwane and Johannesburg. The party is very vulnerable this year.— Prince Mashele, Executive Director of the Centre for Politics and Research
We don‘t need any more evidence of the dangers of an uneducated president .To have a guy who is illiterate when it comes to economics leading a sophisticated economy like ours, that is in dire straits, you must know you are going nowhere. It is not only dangerous to the country, it is dangerous to his party because he is not doing his party great justice.— Prince Mashele, Executive Director of the Centre for Politics and Research
The arrogance of power will be pained when they realise that civil society is rising. And in fact, it is unprecedented to have this kind of uprising against a sitting president.— Prince Mashele, Executive Director of the Centre for Politics and Research
