It is not for ANC W Cape "to doubt" NEC position on Zuma

ANC in the Western Cape is calling for an urgent National Executive Committee special meeting to discuss President Jacob Zuma’s removal of Pravin Gordhan from the finance ministry.

Lionel Adendorf, Chairperson of ANC's Media and Communications Committee, says after a ten-hour meeting on Saturday, they came to a conclusion that it is only through the NEC that everyone can get an understanding of what's happening and a way forward.

The PEC felt on Saturday that it is the NEC that should make a decision on the President and what is happening. It is not for us to include anybody else or have any doubts about NEC's position, it is for us to say this matter is too important and therefore the highest structure should deal with it.

Lionel Adendorf, Chairperson of ANC's Media and Communications committee

Adendorf says he believes that the ANC can still come together amidst the current division within the party.

December 2017 must mean that we need to unite behind it, we need to strengthen it, we need to come together and ensure that it survives.

Lionel Adendorf, Chairperson of ANC's Media and Communications committee

Speaking to CapeTalk/702's Stephen Grootes, Adendorf declined to give comment on what happened at Ahmed Kathrada's memorial where members of the ANC youth league disrupted speakers that were speaking against Jacob Zuma.
