South African Communist Party (SACP) general secretary Blade Nzimande says the understanding between the African National Congress (ANC) and SACP in 2007 when the communist party backed President Jacob Zuma has been betrayed.
Nzimande was speaking at the the communist party's 14th National Congress in Boksburg on Tuesday.
He delivered the SACP’s political report.
Political analyst Karima Brown has more on this and other stories.
