The African National Congress (ANC) secretary general, Gwede Mantashe, said he didn’t stand up when former President Kgalema Motlanthe quoted the late ANC stalwart Ahmed Kathrada’s call for the President to resign, because people want to be popular.
702 Breakfast host, Xolani Gwala, says Mantashe's statement contradicts the speech he also made at Kathrada's funeral describing good leadership.

The biggest problem that we have are people who are so equivocating about issues, who are mincing their words and not direct about what it is their view, bending the values depending on what it is in for them.— Xolani Gwala, 702 Breakfast host
