It is 100% clear: the ANC cannot continue as it is

19 June 2017, 13:20

The very heartbeat of the ANC is supposed to be its president.  Nelson Mandela was: he epitomised the desire for a better life for ALL South Africans. The current ANC leadership certainly does not. Many of them are clearly, undeniably involved in siphoning billions of public money into their own pockets. In other words, robbing the poor. Of decent healthcare, education, housing, sanitation and the rest.

The recent leaked Gupta/Zuma emails make it 100% clear that Thuli Madonsela was totally correct in her report on State Capture. These 100 000 to 200 000 emails are obviously real; they are far, far too detailed and specific to have been made up. They are the actual truth of what is happening to South Africa, showing how Zuma, the Guptas and a number of top ANC leaders are neck-deep in corruption.

But there are also a whole group of other ANC leaders who are against this disgusting organised theft from South Africa's poor. People like Mcebisi Jonas, for example who was offered a bundle of R600 000 in cash by the Guptas with a promise of millions more to come - and refused. People like Pravin Gordhan and Nhanhla Nene. Matthews Phosa has been openly speaking out against ANC corruption. So has Ebrahim Patel, Derek Hanekom, the late Ahmed Kathrada, Barnara Hogan, Kgalema Motlanthe, Jeff Radebe, Max Sisulu, Aaron Motsoeledi, Naledi Pandor and a host of others, including the ANC Chief Whip Jackson Mthembu.

These people cannot remain part of the deeply-entrenched stench of corruption that the ANC has become. Because the current ANC, as led by people like Zuma and his stooges, is no longer the ANC of Mandela. Making Nkosazana-Zuma president would be to simply continue the disaster. And not even Cyril Ramaphosa could rescue it, so deep runs the corruption.

What must happen now is for the above-mentioned leaders to break away from the ANC and form their own party. Or better still, join up with the DA. Because in a democracy, votes are what count. And the only way to get South Africa back on track and growing at 5 to 6% per annum is to put good people in charge. Just a change of president won't do it.

There are many good people still in the ANC. But they CANNOT still remain part of the horrible cesspool of corruption that the ANC has become. Only by obeying their consciences - and not mouthing foul utterances schemed up by that horrible Bell-Pottinger PR agency like Collen Maine does - can we get a group of REAL leaders who will bring this magnificent country back to prosperity.

It is now 100% clear: the ANC simply cannot continue as it is. And a change of president simply won't fix it. Fact.
