Professor Lesiba Teffo says the African National Congress is walking on eggshells in dealing with the parties internal faction.
He says the current ANC leadership knows that there is a fightback from the Nasrec conference factions possibly spearheaded by former president, Jacob Zuma.
That is why they have been pussyfooting. They have been walking on eggshells precisely because they know if you push him, there are others waiting to embrace him.— Professor Lesiba Teffo, Political analyst
Professor Teffo says the faction might prefer North West Premier Supra Mahumapelo be fired so he can play the victim.
In political terms and in the climate we find ourselves; it might be good for him to be fired rather than be made to jump because it's a political game being played. Then he can project himself as a victim who was fighting corruption and other things.— Professor Lesiba Teffo, Political analyst
The ideal would be for him to jump rather than to be pushed. It's always prudent to have it on your CV that you resigned rather than to be fired.— Professor Lesiba Teffo, Political analyst
Listen to how deep the rot is in the ANC according to Prof Teffo
