South Africans have weighed and measured the ANC and found them seriously wanting.
The president’s not planning on letting go of power anytime soon, for fear of ending up in jail.
The ANC NEC has yet to decide whether the Zuma gravy train will be coming to an abrupt stop. In the meantime though, folks online are having a blast.
The tables have turned on Jacob Zuma and his loyalists, as the ANC NEC this weekend tabled a formal motion for el presidente to hit the road.
ANC secretary general Gwede Mantashe’s being given a proper grilling online following comments he made about the DA’s “annual” motion of no confidence in Jacob Zuma.
101 ANC stalwarts have come together as one, calling for urgent corrective measures in order to “reclaim the trust of society and moral high ground” while there’s still time.
The ruling party has refused to comment on reports claiming there’s an internal document being circulated within the party, calling for the president and entire NEC to step down.
ANC chief whip Jackson Mthembu’s not messing around, and we’d wager he’s not exactly the most popular guy over at Luthuli House right now.
Gwede Mantashe has quashed any notion of replacing Zuma following the ANC’s poor performance in the Local Government Elections, this week anyway.
Senior ANC sources reportedly said that Zuma is willing to step down in an attempt to recover some of the ruling party’s “integrity.”
The ANC is peeved at the Gupta family’s New Age Newspaper and ANN7 for reporting a ‘conspiracy’ within the ruling party and suggesting factionalism at the NEC, calling it “reckless journalism.”
You’d think that one of the most serious matters to face the ANC recently would make it onto the party’s NEC committee meeting; alas, Gwede Mantashe has made it clear that the Guptas won’t be discussed.
The ANC’s NEC kicks off this weekend and Zuma’s relationship with the Guptas will take centre stage. Here are the names of those responsible for what comes next.
