There has been much reaction to African National Congress (ANC) Member of Parliament Makhosi Khoza decision to quit the party, with some lauding her.
Khoza made the announcement on Thursday, at Lilliesleaf Farm in northern Johannesburg.
Commenting on the move, Stephen Grootes suggests those publicly speaking out against President Jacob Zuma are less likely to succeed outside the ANC, without a political constituency.
There is a lesson that President Jacob Zuma taught us over the years, he always has a strong political constituency behind him in Kwazulu- Natal and its supported him no matter what.— Stephen Grootes, 702 anchor and Eyewitness News reporter
So people might be excited about Makhosi Khoza and I wish her luck but remember all the people before her who decided to take on President Jacob Zuma without a natural constituency.— Stephen Grootes, 702 anchor and Eyewitness News reporter
Remember the best example of all, Mamphela Ramphele...so if you start your own movement without a natural constituency you will end up in exactly the same way.— Stephen Grootes, 702 anchor and Eyewitness News reporter
