The much-anticipated meeting between ANC (African National Congress) struggle stalwarts and the party's top six holds promise for returning the party to what it used to be.
During the meeting, the veterans insisted that a consultative conference should take place to resolve the "deep crisis" marring the country's liberation movement.
702's Stephen Grootes (standing in for John Robbie) spoke to veteran and CEO of SANParks, Mavuso Msimang, regarding his thoughts following the meeting. Grootes pointed out that citizens have raised concerns about the number of scandals President Zuma is embroiled in.

Mavuso says he was well received by President Jacob Zuma despite him calling for him to step down on various occasions.
He said that the meeting paved the way for continued interaction between credible individuals and elected ANC leadership to determine the party's future.
