Nxumalo says the ANC needs to meet with its alliance partners to discuss its challenges, particularly allegations made in the leaked Gupta emails, and the way forward.

If the ANC fails to convene an Alliance Political Council, the SACP says it will take the matter into its own hands.

If the ANC does not convene the Alliance Political Council, we must convene it ourselves and call all other alliance components to have a collective discussion - even of the ANC is not there - and take firm decisions.
