Johannesburg – ANC veterans want the party to hold a consultative conference to save the organisation, its members, and leaders, Reverend Frank Chikane said on Thursday.

"The leadership is not making the right decisions and is not capable of this," the long-time party member told reporters in Johannesburg.

He is one of 106 ANC stalwarts who expressed concerns about the state of the party and its leadership. They said attempts to get ANC leaders to hear them had been futile.

Chikane said some party leaders had agreed that they were failing to lead the 104-year-old movement.

"It’s like having a nightmare. You know you must scream, you must run, but you can’t.

"Everyone is complaining, including the leaders, and they don’t know what to do in spite of the consequences," he said.

Murphy Morobe, who was part of the 1976 Soweto youth uprisings, hoped that through interactions with the veterans, the ANC’s current leaders would express their own views.
