ANC is a disaster and a liability to South Africa - Prince Mashele

The African National Congress (ANC) is gearing up for its January 8 rally in Kimberley on Saturday.

The governing party has begun its community drive in various across the Northen Cape in preparation for Saturday's mass rally.

Almost 11-million South Africans are unemployed while millions live in abject poverty.

Political analyst Prince Mashele says there is no need for the ruling party to hold such celebration while people are living in poverty.

Speaking to Eusebius McKasier, Mashele says the ANC does not care about the ordinary people of this country.

There is political profit for the ANC for demonstrating that if you are in the ANC you do well. But that is only for party self-sustainability purposes, it has nothing to do with the society at large.

The ANC is a club of people who don't care about the problems that ordinary South Africans are facing on a daily basis.

Mashele says as it stands no one knows if the country will have electricity tomorrow but the ANC is celebrating.

The ANC is a disaster and a liability to South Africa.

Prince Mashele, Political analyst

As we speak there is no water in the Eastern Cape and there is the ANC celebrating. What will society think?

Mashele shares some advice for President Ramaphosa ahead of his January 8 rally speech.

Ramaphosa must acknowledge that the ANC is a rotten party and he must explain to ANC members how the rot came about.

Prince Mashele, Political analyst

The rot is that the ANC has become a vehicle for self-serving members and it is attracting all the opportunists to the party and that kind of material will not build the party.

Prince Mashele, Political analyst

The ANC first issued its 8th January statement on its birthday in 1972, which outlined the programme of the organisation for the year.
