COMETH THE moment, cometh the hour as the 54th African National Congress Elective Congress, takes place at Nasrec, outside Soweto from December 16 to 20 2017.
Already rumour-mill has it that some senior members of the organization are hard at work attempting to buy vote in favour of Nkosazana Dlamini-Zuma. The black refuse bags are synonymous at such gatherings.
According to Jackson Mthembu, the ANC’s senior member said: “Desperation is forcing some people in the ANC to allocate delegates to branches that failed to hold BGMs (branch general meetings).
These attempts of allocating fraudulent delegates are failing together with attempts to replace CR (Cyril Ramaphosa) delegates with bogus ones. The CR branches are fighting viciously all these unANC tendencies and they are winning. Some people have now realised that they don’t have delegate numbers‚ thus these fraudulent despicable attempts‚” Mthembu wrote on his facebook account.
With only days left before the much anticipated, bloody elective congress to take place, gloves are off and blood will be splattered all over…
The ANC’s succession battle is taking shape following the party’s recently concluded 5th national policy conference, with six presidential candidates now reportedly vying to succeed President Jacob Zuma as the ruling party’s next leader amid internal factions and crippling state capture allegations.
Both Dlamini-Zuma and Ramaphosa will face off with other contenders such as Lindiwe Sisulu, Matthew Phosa, Zweli Mkhize, Jeff Radebe and Baleka Mbethe.
According to The Mail & Guardian, delegates at the SACP’s 14th national congress, took a resolution that an alternative political party to be led by Ramaphosa, will be supported should the deputy president lose the election to Dlamini-Zuma.
SACP recently contested the 2017 By-Elections at the Metshimaholo Municipality in the Free State, a sign of broken alliance.
However, the Communist Party will be watching the elective congress with an eye of a needle.
It should be borne in mind that whatever outcome of the congress it will affect the economy, investors and the hopes and aspirations of millions of South Africans, finish & klaar…
