ANC must rule for eternity: Motshekga

2011-12-21 07:44

Polokwane - The ANC has a responsibility to rule Limpopo and the whole country "until Jesus pays another visit", ANC chief whip Mathole Motshekga said on Tuesday.

Speaking on the last day of the Limpopo ANC's elective conference in Polokwane, Mathale said each member had a responsibility to keep the movement alive.

"The organisation has a responsibility to rule until Jesus pays us another visit," he said to thunderous applause from delegates.

President Jacob Zuma received condemnation from religious groups after he made similar comments in 2009.

Greatest think tank in the world

The four-day conference ended on Tuesday. It saw Limpopo Premier Cassel Mathale being re-elected as the ANC's provincial chairperson. He defeated Arts and Culture Deputy Minister Joe Phaahla. Some members in Phaahla's camp left the conference soon after they learned he had lost.

"The ANC is the greatest think tank not only on the continent, but also in the world," he said.

Motshekga commended delegates for their understanding of the character of the ANC through robust discussions aimed at building, and not destroying the party.

Motshekga said the conference was not to be considered a foundation for the ANC's elective conference in Mangaung in December 2012.

"This conference is not about Mangaung, but about this province. The conference was not about the succession debate."

Succession debate

Mathale's victory was a confidence booster for him and his close ally, suspended ANC Youth League president Julius Malema, in their reported efforts to unseat Zuma as ANC president.

However, several provinces still had to hold their elective conferences before the ANC's national conference.

ANC leaders had yet to open the process in which members in their respective branches debated, nominated and submitted lists of preferred candidates to higher structures.

"This province understands that. We should not allow anyone from outside to confuse us, because the choice of leadership of the ANC is the prerogative of the branches of the ANC, and they will do that at an appropriate time," Motshekga said.

Delegates in Polokwane however made it clear through songs and chants that, at Mangaung, they wanted Deputy President Kgalema Motlanthe to replace Zuma. They referred to the president as the "shower man".

Reactionary elements

Motshekga said people sometimes confused "genuine concerns" raised by members with conflict. Since its formation, the ANC had created space for its members to raise such concerns.

"The ANC belongs to its members and it will never allow a situation where any of its members feels like an outsider or stepchild. In this conference comrades understood that the ANC is a family and has to continue as such."

Motshekga reminded delegates that the party existed for nothing but delivering services to people.

In a veiled attack on the Democratic Alliance, Motshekga urged the conference to go back and "reconnect" with people and win back areas of the country run by "reactionary elements".

"Liberate our people, because as long as some reactionary elements still control parts of our country, it means our people are not truly liberated.

"We must work hard to make sure we liberate the Western Cape and some wards which have fallen into the hands of people who don't understand why we wanted freedom."

    ANC members must first learn to rule their own brains before they attempt to rule a country. Besides the term "rule" sounds wrong, sounds like oppression. It should be "Lead". Be good "leaders" and we the people will follow you till the end, be bad "rulers" and we the people will eventually crucify you.

      Bob - 2011-12-21 08:06

      The greatest think tank in the world?, he has got to be having a laugh, how can he say that and keep a straight face, we better hope Jesus pays us a visit this Christmas then we can get the DA in to power and start the process of cleaning this mess up.

      Jono - 2011-12-21 08:13

      If you rule for eternity we will stand up againts you like the people in the north! give you enough rope and you will "hang" yourself. Even your own people are getting tired of you!!!

      Malcolm - 2011-12-21 08:14

      And because of the mentality of it's rulers, Africa will probably continue to be the way it is until Jesus comes.

      Walter - 2011-12-21 08:16

      What a complete "bozo!" Only the stupid, brainless followers would be so gullible to listen to this "crap" dribbling out of his mouth and believe it. The ANC may be in power at the moment, but once the population starts voting with it's brain, a new party with true leadership qualities will prevail. Viva the DA!

      Activity Bookings - 2011-12-21 08:23

      Walter I agree, the problem is that to use the brain you must practice it, the very reason why our countries education is in the pooper, the anc knows how to keep the poor and the masses stupid so that they will be voted in again.

      Anthony - 2011-12-21 08:28

      thank God few days to 2012

      deabreu - 2011-12-21 08:31

      The ANC have 2 trump cards that keep them in power - black racists and poverty. SO it stands to reason that in order for the ANC to win forever, the poor needs to remain poor, and racists need to remain racists. If the poor became rich and ANC supporting racists disappeared overnight, there would be no need for the "ANC" any longer - and South Africa would be a happy, crime-free and the best country to live in.

      Precious - 2011-12-21 08:33

      Eish I must find anatha church. This ANC church and this leadas of mine will make that Jesus neva come to save me.

      Kala - 2011-12-21 08:38

      It's all about the ANC and not about SA

      Dirk - 2011-12-21 08:56

      ANC the greatest"think tank" in the world. Maybe he said "stink tank" Come on N24 get your act together- even the ANC cant make such a blatant error.

      Rebel_without_a_cause - 2011-12-21 09:01

      Me think what we are seeing here is the ugly head of a supremacist movement. The views that they are exclusively better than others as well as the belittling of other groups is so typical of what we have seen from various supremacist groups and cults over the eons. This monster have reared it's head in the name of religion, race and various other dogmas. This time it is in the name of a political party. I wonder when the tenders are going out for the construction of the concentration camps. They will call the camps something politically correct but it is no different to the mindset that resulted in the holocaust.

      Ettienne - 2011-12-21 09:07

      ANC Think tank = Oxymoron.

      Ray - 2011-12-21 09:16

      Then I hope Jesus comes soon.

      Herman - 2011-12-21 09:22

      "Liberate our people, because as long as some reactionary elements still control parts of our country, it means our people are not truly liberated." What the African National Corruption doesn't GET is that, UNLESS we get rid of THEM, this country will NEVER be liberated!

      Sharkshoot - 2011-12-21 09:24

      The ANC will splinter in the next two to three years. The jealousy and infighting will cause the comrades to implode. Money and inflated egos will be the death of this patee.

      John - 2011-12-21 09:34

      The correct term is "Govern." It means administering the country, not "ruling" it or even "leading" it. "Governing" implies a duty of service (and care!). The moronic statements by people like Motshekga give you a brief indication of his mindset. The ANC has a "duty" to "rule" in his words "until Jesus pays another visit." How offensive, how crass.

      methedex - 2011-12-21 11:38

      Well said John. Well said.

      richard.hipkin - 2011-12-21 11:58

      Msholozi - 2011-12-21 16:08

      thank you to my great leaders, im am so very proud to vote ANC they will rule this country and give freedom

      Spyker - 2011-12-21 17:25

      @Msholozi.., You may have heard of a guy called Hitler. In an interview in 1934 (with a British paper) he said the following about his political party - called the Nazi's (that coincidentally share a lot in common with the ANC).., "...I tell you that the Nazi movement will go on for a 1000 years..." His "1000 Year Reich" barely lasted 12 years and he died a broken, bitter man, in a country that was destroyed to rubble as a consequence of his party's rule. So my feckless foe.., be very, VERY careful what you wish for...

      Spyker - 2011-12-21 18:45

      Are we surprised that the world has reinstated the pre-1994 economic sanctions against SA..? The 70% drop in Foreign Direct Investment and the recent cuts in SA's credit rating/s are the de-facto restoration of economic sanctions against SA, specifically against the (current) Fascist Nationalist ANC regime. When a feckless freak, like the cognitively inept nincompoop in the leading article, makes comments that are devoid of any form cerebral capacity - eg like using the words "think" and "ANC" in one sentence - the rest of the world simply responds, by taking their money elsewhere.

      Sheik - 2011-12-21 21:07

      I'm sure he meant "Stink Tank". The money they stealing from the people will run out long before Jesus comes, which will leave them in the same position as "old Bob".

      raath - 2011-12-22 14:51

      The tank might be great, but it is completely empty.

      rowen.loretz - 2011-12-22 14:54

      I agree with methedex...Rule sounds like oppression. If they were true leaders , they would "lead and serve the citzens of this country, have their interests at heart...to help the needy, to encourage citizens to love each other and be humble, patient and unselfish. To share the wealth of this country without taking from one to give to another." As it says in the bible that no one can serve to masters ...it is either God or it is greed ( money ). The values and moral fibre that binds people together has been eroded and I am sad to say it , but the government has failed it's citizens and is part of the great deception of this world. Zuma is accusing Christianity for bringing problems to africa, but fails to mention that it also bought education, medicine, truth. Let no one be deceived by the ANC. See their true colours and vote for someone to take a stand against corruption, murder, hate, injustice!

      John - 2011-12-22 16:59

      ANC are guilty of ignorance, incompetence, negligence, abortion, murder, and Genocide. Look at nationalization: The single most important factor about " nationalization " is: It has not succeeded in '100' countries over '100' years. The countries which have tried it have FAILED, and are moving AWAY from " nationalization ". Russia, China, India, Vietnam, Cuba, Venezuela, Tanzania, Mozambique, Zimbabwe, etc, etc. ALL FAILED. Not only did the TOTAL CONTROL OF THE ECONOMY fail, but the TOTAL CONTROL OF THE PEOPLE also failed. Malema, Cosatu, ANC do not have any ace, or advantage of any kind that makes it possible for nationalization to succeed in South Africa. There are comparable samples of same populations trying TOTAL CONTROL and FREEDOM ECONOMICS: Germany, freedom success, East Germany, nationalization failure. South Korea, freedom success, North Korea, nationalization failure. Hong Kong, Taiwan, Singapore, freedom success, China, nationalization failure. Western Europe, freedom success, Eastern Europe, nationalization failure. Malema, Cosatu, ANC are guilty of ignorance, incompetence, negligence, abortion, murder, and Genocide.

      Mark - 2011-12-21 08:06

      PS. We do live in a socialist republic. You think that there are democratic elections in SA? The ANC party elite are, at this very moment, in the process of electing your future president. What happens in at the ballot box in five year intervals is part of the intricate charade that the ANC shows to the world as 'multi-party democracy'.

      Gary - 2011-12-21 09:46

      Kings and Monarchs rule, the ANC is neither........Once they realise that they are working FOR the people than vice versa will they even have a clue as to how a govern a country.

      They believe in Jesus, but they also believe ancestors will punish them if they don't vote for the ANC... Oxymoron much?

      Angus - 2011-12-21 08:45

      Absoltely! The ANC are playing with fire using the name of Jesus for their own gain when they are a party of devils. They are as evil as any men could ever be, and the Bible is crystal clear about "not talking to the dead" and other ancestral wrongs. I think the black nations of the world need a miracle(quite literally) to start coming right. Basically, nothing less than that will do otherwise all black people are doomed to the same and even worse existence if left with the current "mentality."

  • Daft - 2011-12-21 07:55

    Motshekga your utterances will always fool the illiterate. I can assure you that the anc days are counted and will not be in power when your grand child arrives. Stop using my Lord and Savior's name in vain.

      Jonathan - 2011-12-21 08:13

      Daft, noboddy comes down more than those that think they are un-thouchable. The arrogance of the ANC and their leadership will bring them to a fall, but unfortunatley before that is going to happen they will do a lot of damage to this country. The Bible tells us what the Lord does with those that makes a mockery of His name.

  • michael.e.bowery - 2011-12-21 08:09

    The name of Jesus should not be invoked for any reason by the ANC or it's adherents as it is a Godless organisation. Just as important, Adolf Hitler spoke continuously of his `Thousand year Reich.' Mothole Motshekga would do well to keep that in mind and not head for a similar concrete Berlin bunker ending.

  • Phuti - 2011-12-21 08:12

    As long as there is a party called DA;ANC shall rule until Jesus revisits.the reason for tht is simple most blacks feel free to vote ANC even if they don't like how they rule because voting a DA is simply voting for the oppressor.we need another party to challenge ANC not DA.

      Sharmay - 2011-12-21 08:25

      Firstly blasphemy has no place in politics. The problem comes in where all the other parties are not willing to stand together. Everyone is selfish enough with their own agenda. The DA has done what few people thought they could and they gave the ANC a run for their money in the last elections. As for voting for the "oppressor", no wonder telling the ANC voters that the ancestors are going to be miffed if they dont vote, works. Loyalty over common sense seems to be the order of the day. I voted for the DA because they can show how they turned a city around, how they spent our tax money and they are transparent with their dealings. I am hoping that someday(soon), that might reach over to Gauteng and other provinces that need it too. The poor people here need someone to look after them outside of election time too.

      Jerhone - 2011-12-21 08:35

      to Phuti who is the real oppressor of the poor? it is the ANC that steals from the poor, they are keeping the poor right where they want them uneducated and stupid, how is voting for the DA voting for the oppressor the DA is the party that was against apartheit in the old regime, today the DA has more supporters of colour than whites and will in the not too distant future have a black face as it's leader, the oppressor's that you refer to are sitting in the very party that the blacks vote for, i'm talking about those yellow belly old nats in your party so how can you refer to the DA as the oppressors

      Angus - 2011-12-21 08:59

      Phuti, if the DA is the party of the oppressor, then your cranal cavity is just that....a cavity! They fought the NATS for YOU..... Black people like you confirm irrevocably that black people in general are stupid and like sheep(easy to manipulate) Wake up and look at what is happening around you. At the current rate your party will destroy this country in just a few short years. In fact, I can't see SA surviving even another 3 years of incompetent rule.

      Johncarlos ? Biza - 2011-12-21 09:04

      Only a 3rd of the adult population voted ANC in the last national election. The rest didn't vote, or voted for other parties. I don't know why you ANC fools keep claiming you represent the majority.

      Ian - 2011-12-21 09:07

      @Sharmay - good reasoning, and a solid argument, one with which i concur. HOWEVER, Phuti does have a point. The ANC followers vote for the ANC because everyone else is viewed as the oppressors - an emotional vote - and trying to impose logic on them will not work - Look at Phuti for example. That being said - a new party, that cannot be associated with Apartheid or the so called "oppressors", which can speak on an emotional rather than logical voice to the poor AND provide service delivery would be the best way to go. BUT the question remains how do you do that?? As far as i'm concerned the DA is striving to achieve that what i've mentioned above, sure they still have some faults - but they are heading in the right direction.

      Phuti is jy regtig so dom as wat dit lyk, skrik wakker en ruik die riool om jou huis dit alles is die anc hulle kon nog nooit iets reg doen behalwe om boere dood te maak nie, alles wat verkeerd loop in SA is volgens hulle apartheid se skuld wel ek het nuus vir jou dis onbekwame, ongeskoolde en ongeskikte mense soos die anc en al hul trawante se skuld nie apartheid nie so stop die snert die anc kan nie vir altyd regeer nie hul is besig om uit te val dis net n kwessie van tyd

      Henk - 2011-12-21 10:02

      @Phuti - In other words, another party which also has no white face in it? Then you can just as well stick to the ANC.

      mholthuysen - 2011-12-21 11:24

      Phuti - if you continue to believe the garbage of your beloved leaders I am not surprised. But I have news flash for you - Helen Zille uncovered the murder of Steve Bhiko - she was actively involved in making sure the NATS were brought out of power. During September 1977, Minister of Justice and the Police J.T. Kruger announced that anti-apartheid activist Steve Biko had died in prison as the result of an extended hunger strike. Zille and her editor Allister Sparks were convinced Kruger's story was a cover-up, and Zille obtained concrete proof of this after tracking down and interviewing various doctors involved in the case. The Rand Daily Mail's lead story, headlined "No sign of hunger strike - Biko doctors", sent shockwaves through South Africa, and Kruger immediately threatened to ban the paper, while Zille received death threats. Zille and Sparks were represented at the subsequent quasi-judicial Press Council by leading defence lawyer Sydney Kentridge, but the two were nonetheless found guilty of "tendentious reporting", and the paper was forced to issue a "correction". Kentridge later helped confirm the accuracy of Zille's account when he represented the Biko family at the inquest into his death. That inquest found Biko's death had been the result of a serious head injury, but failed to find any individual responsible. She also lead the Black Sash Movement to fight against apartheid and offered safe houses in 1986 to activists - sounds like an oppressor?

      Garth - 2011-12-21 12:27

      Well put together Mike. However, you are arguing the case of good over evil to the blind, deaf and eternally ignorant. Phuti is one of the brainless voices that the inept anc relies on to stay in power. And they will not tolerate a white man giving them lessons on the `struggle'; that is not what the anc handbook on SA history states. To the ignorants of the anc, that is blasphemy. It is high time that the white, asian and coloured supporters of the anc realised that there is no place for them in that ineptocracy - they shall be the first casualties once their `voice of reason' has died.

      myfriendshane - 2011-12-22 08:38

      Trying to change the mind of a zealot, is like trying to convince a fish to run the comrades.... it aint gonna happen. Unfortunately this turd believes that every white person is an oppressor and thus confirms his belief in racism.... and thus absolves any racist action that any white person has ever committed - as he himself is a racist of the highest order. Thanks Phutu.

      Jason - 2011-12-22 08:42

      Phuti, you my friend belong in the zoo, do you not see what the ANC is doing to this Country, get real catch a wake up, muppet!!

  • Gerhard - 2011-12-21 08:12

    So sorry buddy, but the Western Cape has been liberated from the corrupt ANC and is governed by the people for the people. This is true democracy and not crminal like the rest of the country.

  • Jannie - 2011-12-21 08:12

    LOL what a moron. an african dictatorship/regime is all this is. democracy means that the people can choose who governs them, these idiots dont think so. They have created a Zombie mass that follows them blindly.. just look at how KJI supporters screamed and cried when that nutjob died in north korea. similar thing..

  • tbomelamsomi - 2011-12-21 08:14

    Greatest think tank in the world???Till jesus pays a visit?? how does a man with a Harvard Law degree spew such garbage?he doesnt even believe in Jesus being the founder of the KARA institute!!Unbelievable

  • Dexter - 2011-12-21 08:15

    What is this guy smoking? The ANC is made up of the biggest bunch of retards on the planet, can't wait for the day that this party gets crushed!

  • Darryl - 2011-12-21 08:18

    I'm really tired of you ANC. What movement are you going on about. Seriously, get you and all your corrupt officals sorted out, fire them and lay down the law that corruption will not be tolerated anymore. You guys are becoming the biggest racists in this country. U see what has happened to all the dictators that said they would rule forever? Where they now hey!, 6 feet under. Slowly your organization is gonna explode from the inside out.You guys just cant get over apartheid and move on. no matter what goes wrong you always blame apartheid for your stuff ups. Grow up and start sorting out the ANC mess ups. You can learn so much from the DA, but u just want your dirty corrupt hands on the WC cookie jar. Im glad the DA are running the western cape and that ppl are happy here. Look at how the ANC have run the other 8 provinces to the ground and u re-elect corrupt officals for different positions. The ANC's day of reckoning is coming soon. Your supporter will one day see what you are doing to them and they will turn on you and then you gonna need Jesus.

  • Wesley - 2011-12-21 08:18

    But you not going to

  • Thabiso - 2011-12-21 08:20

    Maybe Jesus is due back sooner than anyone realizes. Western cape already gone, anc got a run for their money in the Eastern Cape, might not be as lucky in the next elections and that would mean two provinces gone.

      Thozi - 2011-12-21 08:49

      @thabiso.kwena: And they still remain arrogant, foul-mouthed and corrupt. The only thing to save the nation is if they lose more provinces, then more seats so that they don't have a big majority. Then comes 2019, they are removed and the reconstruction of the country truly starts.

      Perfume - 2011-12-22 07:51

      Gentlemen I applaud you comments. @Thozi they will get a shock come the next elections, they will then realise that Jesus never EVER paid them any visits.

  • colin.chester1 - 2011-12-21 08:21

    Wow! National Party move on over! We have another group of nutters who think ruling the country is their divine right. Great! Just what we need..NOT!

  • George - 2011-12-21 08:21

    Comments are bound to be outstanding in this issue, thanks ANC for an early xmas present and a jolly good belly chuckle.

      Sharmay - 2011-12-21 08:30

      I agree.

  • Archie - 2011-12-21 08:22

    The greatest stink tank in the world is more appropriate.The stink comes from all the cadavers(dead from the ears downwards cadres)that pollute their gatherings.ANC you are run by communist ideologies ,the tripartiet alliance is dead .BTW Jesus loved and cared for his people,check the 10 commandments you dont even know or obey any one of them.so leave Him out of you idiot mumblings.

  • SeeVeeDeeEl - 2011-12-21 08:23

    When we hear these brain dead morons yapping and spouting crap we are reminded why apartheid was an unfortunate necessity.

  • TheWatcher - 2011-12-21 08:25

    "The ANC is the greatest think tank not only on the continent, but also in the world,". I nearly died this morning choking on my cornflakes when I read this. With leaders like ours who needs comedians?

      David - 2011-12-21 08:42

      I think they mean "thick" tank..LOL. And the comedy award for 2011 goes to....Motshekga.

      Ina - 2011-12-21 08:59

      More like a SEPTIC tank!

  • Leon - 2011-12-21 08:25

    This PR!CK can't be serious????

  • Sharmay - 2011-12-21 08:27

    Are you sure the Western Cape wants the ANC's liberation?? Is that why the voted for the DA in the last elections? Twat.

      TaniaSandraSteyn - 2011-12-22 16:44

      They are shipping in people loyal to their party at an alarming rate. Don't underestimate their cunning.

  • Robi - 2011-12-21 08:27

    Even Jesus Christ walked into the unknown. They even washed his feet unaware that they were after his blood. The statement is dangerous to our democracy for the fact that the ANC was competing against itself. For leader to say that send a wrong message to all of us. The question is was the ANC competing with other parties?.

  • Johan Grobbelaar - 2011-12-21 08:30

    Yay! Exactly 1 year of anc left then! Roll on 21 December 2012... :D

  • Harald - 2011-12-21 08:31

    Goodness these guys are embarrassing... Who still votes form them?? WTF Its like Bob thinking he runs a great country, or that North Korean guy thinking people are actually gonna miss him... Delusional...

  • Gregory Jurgens - 2011-12-21 08:31

    Hoza Jesu !!!

  • LekkePerd - 2011-12-21 08:33

    Motshekga must be family of Mugabe, geez boet, you are a total Moron. Don't worry, we are in silly season, you must be suffering of it. Wake up bra,

  • andre.smuts - 2011-12-21 08:34

    Hmmm "Think Tank" indeed...What this country needs is " Innovators and Doers" not a group pumped up rhetorical bumblers sitting around mentally masturbating about the "second coming"..pun intended.

  • Kala - 2011-12-21 08:36

    When will the ANC stop thinking about itself and start thinking about the coutry?

      Angus - 2011-12-21 09:04

      Spot on Kala. Every time the ANC is in the news it is always about THEM and their succession battles and who will "rule" and who will be the next wave of pigs at the trough! It is never about what plan they have to reduce poverty, educate masses, add value etc.

      Jj - 2011-12-21 09:40

      Kala cause the anc cant think they never could and never will,

      Perfume - 2011-12-22 07:54

      They will never start thinking about the country, they think as far as the cookie jar, no further.

  • Kevin - 2011-12-21 08:38

    you have only been ruling for 17 years and look at the chaos. you probably won't be around for another 100 years as you are busy self destructing... tick, tick, tick, kabhoooooommmmmmmm. GONE!
