Gauteng MEC for education Panyaza Lesufi speaks about the state of Education in GP and ANC affairs in the province.

The battle for top positions in the Gauteng African National Congress (ANC) is heating up.

Gauteng MEC for education Panyaza Lesufi is running for deputy chairperson of the party in the province.

Also vying for the second top post is former Johannesburg mayor Park Tau and economic development MEC Lebogang Maile.

Speaking to Eusebius McKaiser, Lesufi says the ANC needs to be a movement that attracts everyone regardless of where they are.

I'm going to say something that I know I will be attacked. We mismanaged the Julius Malema phenomenon.

We were quick to expel people that we should have spoken to them.

If you check the knock-on effect of the members that left us to join the EFF, that's exactly what we have lost in terms of voter participation. People didn't leave the ANC for the opposition, they left for a far left movement or a movement that felt the ANC was not strong enough.

Panyaza Lesufi, Gauteng MEC for Education

Our incapability to manage internal differences, unfortunately, affected us. For me how we mismanaged those internal differences remains the key part that led us to lose power in those two metros.

Panyaza Lesufi, Gauteng MEC for Education

Listen to the state of Education in Gauteng...
