Voters do not own leaders

Voters should not view the leaders they elected as their property, ANC secretary-general Gwede Mantashe said on Sunday.

"When electing, people tend to pretend to be owning the candidate. They think that now that we've delivered you to leadership, then you should follow our thinking," he told his party's national conference in Mangaung in the Free State.

"In this conference we'll elect leaders who will be leaders of the ANC for those who support it and those who do not."

Mantashe explained to the conference why the ANC had taken action against former ANC Youth League leader Julius Malema.

One of the reasons was his utterances against the ruling party.
