'Zuma's leadership hurts ANC and country'- Sipho Pityana
African National Congress (ANC) stalwart and Chairman of AngloGold Ashant, Sipho Pityana, says if the ANC National Executive Committee (NEC) does not recall President Jacob Zuma it will have to face the reality that Zuma is not wanted by the majority of South Africans.
I hope that people will understand that the moment we are facing now is very different from the Mbeki moment in 2008. There is a greater risk to the country with the continued Presidency of Jacob Zuma, and his continued Presidency will hurt the ANC as well.Sipho Pityana, ANC stalwart and Chairman of AngloGold
