THE call by the ANC for the succession debate to be opened in October is correct and needs to be respected. The coming Mangaung conference won’t be different to other conferences.
Let’s stop being disturbed by opportunists and the media. This congress will go smoothly and advance the national democratic revolution.
The election to certain positions will be determined by the branches. This time once again the power is on branches to decide, as they did in Polokwane.
Those who use their powers as heads of departments and tenderpreneurs to give direction to the ANC branches as we march towards Mangaung must be exposed and expelled.
Let’s all as true and principled members expose all forms of patronage, exploitation and corruption in the organisation.
All those who call themselves "leaders” and use their positions in government to influence the ANC’s direction must go.
Let’s expose, name and shame them before we reach Mangaung.
The ANC doesn’t want them – they are the cowards and thieves. It’s time in the Eastern Cape to be united and occupy our space of giving a political direction.
There are meetings taking place at night attended by so-called leaders with bags of money. Let’s name and shame them once more. There’s unity in diversity.
