Clergies Try To Steal Mangaung

14 December 2012, 08:27

A group of priests has thrown the gauntlet against the ANC, saying that the party's current leaders have lost the moral high ground. The priests' stinging attack comes ahead of the party's watershed 53rd national conference which pits President Jacob Zuma against his deputy, Kgalema Motlanthe.

It is common knowledge that Motlanthe's candidature for ANC president (this has mutated to deputy president and additional member) is sponsored by those who want "anyone but Zuma."

There ABZ campaign to oust President Zuma has found resonance within the disgruntled sectors of the South Africa society - unrehabilitated losers of Polokwane, renegades who were expelled or suspended, and sections of the media and the opposition.

No wonder the ANC secretary-general, Gwede Mantashe, accused the priests of trying to steal Mangaung by trying to influence its leadership outcome. How else do you explain the timing of their indictment of the current leadership of the ANC!

Similar attempts by sections of the clergy and the fellow travellers were met by ignominy in their efforts to subvert democracy.

They failed then, and they are sure to fail now.

At the end of the ANC 53rd national conference, the will of the overwhelming members of the organisation will prevail, when Zuma is returned as President of the organisation.
