Buffalo City ANC supports Zuma

2012-10-08 09:33

East London - The Regional Executive Committee (REC) of the ANC in the Buffalo City Metropolitan region in the Eastern Cape supports President Jacob Zuma for re-election at the Mangaung conference, it said on Sunday.

"As the REC we resolved to support leadership continuity with change in few positions where some comrades couldn't assist the organisation to meet its objectives," said regional secretary Mkhawuleli Maleki.

"In our assessment, we agreed to support the leadership stability shown by collective leadership led by President Jacob Zuma leadership in the past five years and we think the status quo must remain where possible."

He said that the political administration of the ANC, in the hands of secretary general Gwede Mantashe, has improved.

"In essence, we support the position adopted by the provincial executive committee because we see that as the province we are beginning to start a process of reclaiming our political space in the national political arena, so with that principle, we agree with the provincial executive committee [PEC] to retain Cde Zuma as the president as we have gained a lot under his leadership.

"We prioritise unity and cohesion, we agree that when we engage in all these issue, we must do so in such a way that unity and cohesion prevails."

    What stability when service protests have become a norm.

      vusi.hadebe.5 - 2012-10-08 13:52

      don.mug get out of your mug and see reality. service delivery protests are nothing but a political game played by waring factions within the ruling party. i'm not trying to water down the credibility of some service delivery related protests,but the majority of them stem from the factions within the party which started before after polokwane conference in 2007.

    What is it that you have gained under his leadership?

      Professor.T.E - 2012-10-08 09:59

      You can ask that again Steen... or maybe they talking about Tenders...!

      azande.futhi - 2012-10-08 09:59

      tsatsi.golden - 2012-10-08 10:12

      Corruption and tenders

  • brett.michielin - 2012-10-08 09:56

    We all know how well the Eastern Cape is run. So why are we not surprised.

      azande.futhi - 2012-10-08 10:00

      pity pity pity, i give up.

      brett.michielin - 2012-10-08 10:03

      True my brother

  • azande.futhi - 2012-10-08 09:57

    Now my home town has lost it. How do you guys support Zuma. The bastard has caused matters to be worse in EC and only considers nothing another one that uimproves KZN. Zuma has no success track record and during his tenure ANC has gone from better to worse with factions, ruthlessness, killings, corruption for the first time last year reaching a sky rocketing R30 Billion. Are we really so blind that we cannot see what Zuma is all about? He only cares about his polygmaous habit, his 20 something babies and Inkandla, nothing else.

      aniken.vader.31 - 2012-10-08 10:06

      I think "corruption" is no longer the word here! Down-right "CRIMINAL ACTIVITIES" is more likely! I ALSO have to ask, why does the anc president must also be the south african president? Why can there not be TWO power houses so that one CAN hold the other responsible! I mean if other parties simply won;t do for these blind anc followers, at LEAST make some form fo an accountability environment from where this country could be ruled..!

      azande.futhi - 2012-10-08 10:43

      @anikenvader, the system that is being used to elect government leadership is political and there is nothing much we can do about it. The problem in my view is actually not the system but the gap in membership, between the ruling party and the opposition. If were to pursuade all opposition parties to form a coalition to become one political opposition, then things would get better. As long as we stil have multiple political parties, ANC will rule till "Jesus comes". ANC doesnt care about making blunders nor do they care about turning around the current situation of poor service delivery and looting of state resources by few prominent individuals becauase they know, come next election they still gonna win. that is the sad part.

      I read an article that said that Zuma knows that he performed very bad and does not want to go down as the worst ANC leader. So He wants 5 more years to correct His mess. However I doubt He will be able to correct it, especially considering the bad decisions that He continues to make. E.g, the Nkandla and Menzi Simelane issues.

  • hudayfah.newman - 2012-10-08 10:10

    Aah well, its eastern cape. They mess up a whole province and no one is held accountable. Ofcourse they'll stick to Zuma.

  • david.mnyungula - 2012-10-08 10:12

    Maybe u r joking mr maleki or u benefit nt us

      bernard.buckley.3 - 2012-10-08 10:18

      The only reason they are supporting ZUMA is to hold on to their jobs, a new president would FIRE the lot of them.

  • shayne.r.barker - 2012-10-08 10:15

    Well of course they would! Because the BCM is just as corrupt and useless as what JZ is. Bird of a feather flock together.

  • sihlangu.hokweni - 2012-10-08 10:46

    I like it!!! Because if they go to the 2014 National Elections with JZ @the helm:a lot of disgruntled supporters are either not going to vote or worse still vote for other parties

  • adupedi - 2012-10-08 11:01

    those who support zuma must go to school. zuma must stepdown immeditialy before the hunger start. viva mothlate viva.

  • ivan.goodman.77 - 2012-10-08 11:17

    You are talking buffalo poo, stability,how many times did he change ministers from one post to another then you want to talk about stability, by keeping the poor blacks uneducated and on social grants they know they got their votes. One of the most corrupt leaders.

  • leko.dada1 - 2012-10-08 11:29

    continuity and cohesion in murdering blacks? if leaders decide to be sellouts, we (the masses) will officialy register and vote for PEOPLES JUSTICE and DEVELOPMENT PARTY and elect representatives to lead beyond 2014 elections ...

  • david.diego.14 - 2012-10-08 11:40

    MR Maleki nothing improved under JZ

  • musawakhe.ngubane - 2012-10-08 13:12

    Under this collective leadership led by Zuma, the ANC reached the 1 million membership mark, a 1942 ANC resolution. The Alliance is fully functional with positive relations. The NHI is being piloted, ANC-led government's HIV/AIDS strategy has improved. We have the best ever SG under cde Gwede. We strongly believe in this collective leadership. Sorry money comrades (hyenas), we have a clear mandate for Mangaung. One wrong move by cde DP, he is out. He must not be used by people pushing their own selfish interests. Second term, Mangaung here we come!

      vivica.vee.1 - 2012-11-13 22:38

      AMANDLA ANC UNDER THE LEARDERSHIP OF ZUMA NXAMALALA.

  • glen.e.huysamer - 2012-10-08 13:46

      vivica.vee.1 - 2012-11-13 22:49

      ANC MEMBERS USES THE DOCUMENT CALLED THROUGH THE EYE OF THE NEEDLE TO ELECT THEIR LEARDERS WE DON'T HAVE TRIBALISM IN THE ANC. JZ IS NOMINATED IN ALL 9PROVINCES LET ME NOT WAIST MY TIME MYBE U AR NOT EVEN A MEMBER OF ANC OR U AR NOT EVEN A SOUTH AFRICAN.

  • phillip.phogole - 2012-10-08 17:00
