"Some ANC leaders would be nowhere if party had proper election"

5 April 2017 8:45 AM

ANC veteran, Mavuso Msimang, says the election system of ANC leadership needs to change to prevent factional interests.

African National Congress (ANC) veteran, Mavuso Msimang, says there is a growing number of ANC members in the senior structures, such as national executive council in Parliament and portfolio committees, who are not happy with the current state of the party.

Msimang admits that members are limited by self interest and self preservation and cannot go against the collective decision of the party.

Yes they may not be the majority, and because the ANC leadership has not accepted a proposal by the Veterans 101 to have a conference in which people will discuss among things, the way best of electing a leadership that would command respect and that would not be given to factionalism. They have rejected that.

After all some of them would be nowhere if you had proper elections not dominated by people who use money and other interests.

The ANC veterans have called on the ANC to recall President Jacob Zuma saying he is not fit to be the President.

Alliance partners Congress of South African Trade Unions (Cosatu) and the South African Communist Party (SACP) have also called on Zuma to step down following his criticised Cabinet reshuffle last week.
