The controversial politician Carl Niehaus, who resigned from the ANC in 2022 also said he’s starting his own political movement as there are those in the party who have destroyed the organisation and do not represent the ideas of those who served on Robben Island

“We are going to show them flames. We are going to work. We are going to work day after day, hour after hour, until we have achieved these ideals.”

And we give notice to Cyril Ramaphosa and to the sell-outs in the dead ANC, that ANC of which they have hollowed out the cause and created something we no longer recognise.” 

“We are going to take them on. We are not taking them on because we hate them personally. We take them on because they have betrayed the liberation Struggle, they do not deserve to be called the leaders of the African National Congress,” Niehaus said.

IOL reports that he’s giving “them” notice and would speak more about his resignation from the ANC and his plans for the future via Twitter on January 4 at 7 pm.

He posted a media statement on his Twitter account discussing the resignation on 23 December 2022. This comes after Niehaus was expelled from the ANC for misconduct.  

The politician also revealed on his birthday that he’s now 63 years and has no time for endless meetings: “I have no time for endless meetings where the statutes, rules, procedures & internal regulations are discussed, knowing that nothing will be done. I no longer have the patience to stand absurd people who, despite their chronological age, have not grown up.” 

News24 reports that the former uMkhonto we Sizwe Military Veterans Association spokesperson resigned after he was expelled from the party after the ANC’s national disciplinary committee (NDC) found him guilty of six charges of misconduct.
