'Factions aside, it's time to regroup as ANC members'-Tito Mboweni

Former South African Reserve Bank Governor Tito Mboweni says the ANC could become irrational in its response to the political power changes.

Mboweni says 'local elections have changed our politics forever and that the ANC could become irrational in its response to the changing situation'.

He made reference to Zimbabwe African National Union – Patriotic Front (ZANU–PF) which has been in power since 1980.

We have seen how political parties behave when they are confronted with a changed situation and start behaving irrational.

Tito Mboweni, former Reserve Bank Governor

The political landscape is changing. There is still a real possibility for the ANC to recoup lost ground and that will depend to the large extent on what kind of leadership emerges at the ANC conference in 2017.

Asked about factions and divisions within the ANC, Mboweni said he doesn't believe in groupings that divide the organisation.

The people who are genuinely ANC members and leaders, should strive for the unity of the organisation. It is time to regroup. It's time to reorganise. It's time to do criticism and self-criticism. And chart the way forward.
