Opinion: Mantashe must stop mincing words

30 March 2017 7:44 AM
Xolani Gwala says there was no need for the ANC SG to criticise Motlanthe for quoting Kathrada’s call for the President to resign.

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.

You must decide whether you are with the people who want the high level of ethics that you are talking about or you are on the other side.

Xolani Gwala, 702 Breakfast host

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.
