#OccupyLuthuliHouse - ANC children will take a bullet

African National Congress (ANC) members will march to Luthuli House to demand that the ANC recall President Jacob Zuma and remove the national executive committee (NEC).

The #OccupyLuthuliHouse march is the most recent public condemnation of the party under Zuma's leadership. A few days ago, Simphiwe Pityana slammed Zuma at former Sports Minister Mike Stofile's funeral.

In an interview with 702's John Robbie, ANC member Bonolo Ramokhele, said the march is a way of raising concerns about the erosion of the party, factionalism and its future in the country.

In response to the march, the ANC Women's League (ANCWL), the MKMVA and the ANC Youth League (ANCYL) have chastised the protesters, saying they should raise their concerns through the party's structures.

The march commences at 8am from Beyers Naude Square and more than 2 000 people are expected to participate.

We're urging the public to stay away because we don't want to see people getting hurt unnecessarily. If anyone has to take a bullet today, it's ANC children going to ANC headquarters.

This is about standing up for a genuine cause and in fact standing up for the ANC when people are standing up for individuals with the African National Congress.

Adding fuel to murmurs of factionalism in leadership structures, the ANC has called for action against Minister Mosebenzi Zwane after he released a statement saying that that Cabinet has resolved to set up a judicial inquiry into various banks' decision to close the accounts of the Gupta family.

In an interview with 702's Xolani Gwala, spokesperson for Zwane, Martin Madlala confirmed the inquiry.
