Maine got Zuma's blessings to call Gordhan 'impimpi'- analysis

28 February 2017 9:20 AM

ANC Youth League president, Collen Maine, called Pravin Gordhan an impimpi for enabling monopoly capital over the weekend.

The African National Congress (ANC) has distanced itself from attacks by it's Youth League on Finance Minister Pravin Gordhan, labelling it reckless.

ANCYL president, Collen Maine, called Gordhan an impimpi (traitor) for having monopoly capital interests saying President Jacob Zuma must deal with him.

... calling someone who is the minister in the democratic government of President Zuma appointed by Zuma an impimpi in the presence of the President points to the fact that this must happen with the President's blessings.

The fact that the statement was released yesterday gives one the sense that there was considerable behind the scenes rumblings around the statement.

In my view it's not just Collen Maine that was sanctioned, in some way it's the President too, because Maine could not have possible made that statement without believing it will land well with President Zuma.
