ANC of President Zuma thrives on noise and chaos - Mashele

Political analyst Prince Mashele says he does not expect the KZN ANC Youth League (ANCYL) to be disciplined following disruptions at the Ahmed Kathrada memorial in Durban.

On Sunday, members booed former Finance Minister Pravin Gordhan as he entered the Sastri College hall.

Mashele says the league's actions were by instruction and designed to make sure that those disapproving of President Jacob Zuma 's leadership do not get an opportunity to speak.

The ANC of President Zuma thrives on noise and chaos.

Prince Mashele, Political Analyst

What happened yesterday was actually by design. It is very clear that there is a strategy that has been devised somewhere. The ANC Youth League is part of that strategy, and what they must have been instructed to do is to make sure that they do not allow anybody who is voicing dissent and expressing disapproval of the leadership of Presiden Jacob Zuma .....It's not an accident, they will not be disciplined because they are part of that strategy.

Prince Mashele, Political Analyst

On Monday Chairperson of the African National Congress (ANC) in KwaZulu Natal, Sihle Zikalala condemned the incident and said the league owes Gordhan an apology.
