E Cape ANCWL backs Zuma

2012-10-01 20:34

Johannesburg - The Eastern Cape ANC Women's League has nominated President Jacob Zuma for a second term, its provincial executive committee said on Monday.

"In our meeting we decided to support Comrade President Jacob Zuma for a second term as the president of the ANC," the PEC said in a statement.

It also supported the African National Congress's deputy president Kgalema Motlanthe for a second term, unless he decided to contest the presidency of the party.

It wanted secretary general Gwede Mantashe to serve another term, and chairperson Baleka Mbete.

The provincial PEC did not nominate anyone for the positions of deputy secretary general or treasurer general.

"We are of the view that there is a need for change in the positions of the deputy secretary general and that of the treasurer general."

Mathews Phosa is treasurer general and Thandi Modise is deputy secretary general at the moment.

The PEC wanted equal representation of women in all the ANC structures.

"Therefore, we are calling on all ANC branches to observe the 50/50 policy in identifying delegates to the national conference in Mangaung.

"To be specific, if a branch has four delegates, we expect two of those to be females and the other two to be male comrades."

Nominations for candidates for the ANC's top leadership positions opened at the weekend.

The national elections take place in Mangaung in December at the ANC's national conference.

    I Think JZ is a great president and should stay president for the next 10 years!

      Tim Elliott - 2012-10-01 21:02

      Sipho Do u even know what GREAT means?Perhaps you can share with the rest of us what makes Zuma GREAT for you!

      irene.buthelezi.1 - 2012-10-01 21:16

      I doubt Sipho has ever even left his village, let alone know what a 'great man' is.

      bongile.langa - 2012-10-01 21:39

      @Sipho....maybe rule for the nxt 20 years or forever don't u think, of course not! This country needs leadership that's going to move it to the direction of development, and appreciation of ALL its citizens, NOT ANC citizens first then the rest.

      BulletProof. - 2012-10-01 21:46

      Yes Tell us about the JZ achievements, tell us about corruptions, tell us about the failure of building the promised houses, tell us about the promises on the employment, tell us about the uncontrolled rampant crime that take the peace of the honest citizens of this country and much more. We would love to ear from you, we and the families of the people that was assassinated due to the incompetence of this president and is government would just like to understand. And don't come with the story of blaming the past or the race, please just tell us.

      sam.ntshangase - 2012-10-01 22:00

      @BuletProof, crime stats was released last week there is decline, houses check with Tokyo your prefered candidate, Marakana strikers were armed, dangerous anything should have hapened to my bro as policeman, ok

      Thabang - 2012-10-01 22:05

      @Tim Elliott - I agree Zuma is great. - He build one of the most beautiful palaces in the world. - He kept Angie Motshega as the ANCWL president even after all you people complained about the text book saga. - Its through him that our golfer Shabir Shaick will be joining Ernie Els by representing S.A in golf. - He showed S.A. men how to take responsibility by accepting that He is the father of Sonono Khoza's child. - He taught the nation how to take care of our families by ensuring His family have the best lifestyle. E.g ZEE(Zuma Economic Empowerment) - South Africa is about to have the world class city in the form of Zumaville. So I am not sure what your issue is.

      Can anyone of you point out just one other thing that Zuma has done wrong, beside that he has more than one wives and disputes on Semelane's appointment. Are this reasons enough to change the president?

    Really is absurd that the ancwl has nominated zuma it goes to show people within the ruling party are no longer serving for the peoples interest but instead their own personal interest zuma isn't doing the country any gud his a leader with a lack of vision ,a strategic tribalist serving his personal and family well being

      sam.ntshangase - 2012-10-01 23:04

      @Rasthami, don't wory we know what the secret behind Zuma is al about we are preparing 4 you a beter life in 2017, give us a chance 4 five yrs thereafter you will be hapy forever, trust me as ANC member nt suporter. There is something scary we need to solve with Zuma unless the whole country wil be on fire, 5yrs nt long Zuma will be out, gud things comes 4 those who wait

      sibusiso.mhlongo.35 - 2012-10-01 23:45

      hahahhahahaha this is ridiculous, so did Zuma kill those people? is he the one preventing the people from getting jobs? during the apartheid era some people were unemployed, the ANC took over, Tata Mandela was a president still there were unemployed people, thereafter it was Mbeki still some people were not employed, so i wonder what's new now about this unemployment issue. our hatred for Zuma sometimes makes us to turn a blind eye on reality and want to interpret things the way we want them to be.

  • Adriano Rodrigues - 2012-10-01 21:59

    Some People like to suffer. They have the chance to vote for change and they decide to keep the status quo. I rest my case.

      sibusiso.mhlongo.35 - 2012-10-01 23:47

      we suffered a lot during the apartheid era, what us happening now is not suffering compared to what happened then.

  • Siyabonga Adolphas Buthelezi - 2012-10-01 22:27

    The ANCWL are happy with Jacob Zuma leadership.If you don't like Zuma please do yourself a favour by voting 4 a person you think he or she is the right person to lead the country.

      SaintBruce - 2012-10-01 22:46

      You don't get it. Democracy is about the people - the whole population of the country - being able to vote for a particular leader. The way politics is set up, here you have a select group from each province making the choice that belongs to EVERY South African! Then - the elections are about choosing a PARTY , irrespective of whether that winning party has chosen the best candidate or not. That, my friends, is not Democratic in any way, shape or form. Every election since 1994 has been set up in favour of one party only - the ANC. Let the selected leader or each political party stand in open debate with every other one to let the people of this country have a proper choice of a proper leader. Also - bring back constituent representation with accountability from ward level Councillors right up to the Mayors, then we might get service delivery on track and finances spent appropriately. Right now, the centre 6 of the ANC are not leading in anything else than very fat bank accounts! It makes no difference who comes out on top as the "politburo" committee still makes the rules to keep themselves in power. This is core policy taught at Patrice Lumumba University in Moscow. Go look it up sometime. 1% control the 99% , classic socialist Marxist strategy and the masses haven't got a clue now have they?

      sibusiso.mhlongo.35 - 2012-10-01 23:51

      good one Sya, people should learn not to others who to vote for, just vote for whoever u like and let us make our own choice. we all have a freedom of choice, we do not want to be dictated by anyone

      Michael - 2012-10-01 23:04

      You know people do mistakes, i have made a big mistake to believe Motanthe was the men of highest intergrity and character for many years, i always thought he is a good leader, i was proven wrong this weekend after learning that he believed expeling Malema was wrong. This man can not lead ANC, He lacks polotical judgement, someone like that will be instruted by Malema as it was the case with Casel Mathale of Lompopo.

      rasthami.m1 - 2012-10-01 23:06

      If you really were using brains your would see the picture how since zuma corruption has escalated ,unemployment is at a verge of reaching a horrofic digits the country is building up to a point of breakage it aint about malema buddy its about the country's well being the current state of the country really is apalling it has us we black wishing to migrate to other countries too

  • phillip.marchant.52 - 2012-10-01 22:59

    Well, it's no wonder no one in the Eastern Cape wants any political change at the moment. Why, with the resounding success in every aspect of governance that the ANC has made in that province, who would want to bring it all to a premature end? There is still so much to undo, and who knows, a new vote might just bring in a whole bunch of corrupts, who feel nothing for serving the people, but fill their heads with racist lies, so that their eyes can remain closed whilst their legacy is thieved from them by those who claim to be serving them. And then they'll all get drawn into the same cycle of corruption, obliging them to keep on voting the same corrupts into power, just so that they can stay out of jail. Now who would want that?

    I second this suggestion, Phosa and Modise must be replaced by Cyril and Cdr Nosiviwe Maphisa Ngcakula/Lindiwe Sisulu, we need people who dont tollarate ill-discipline as it was discussed at the NGC in Durban. Motlanthe can correct Malema out of ANC strutures if he believes he is correctable, i think Malema is the worst, thats why he is expelled.

  • zain.halle - 2012-10-02 06:59

    I would like to understand why after 18 years the term comrade which is communist/war term is still being used? This word implies that there is a struggle and is very negative. I am not being facetious but really would like to understand. I would think brother/sister, uncle/aunt or something positive would be used. The use of negative language insinuates that there is no respect or decisive leader.

      Michael - 2012-10-02 07:33

      My brother strugle continues, but of a different type, so the term'comrade'must be used until all people are free from poverty, unemployement and Hiv/aids, the sad part is folkes who call each other comrades are not serving people, but themselves, the other guy is owing SARS R16m, whats that? that means the guy had more than 70m in his account at some point, but he claims to be the champion of the poor.

  • winifred.watson.9 - 2012-10-02 07:25

    These ANCWL ladies should be ashamed for themselves. Children in the Eastern Cape have been left without education they have had to move into the western cape to seek a better education. NOT so for these CHAMPION ANCWL ladies, their children go to private Schools. Health etc has been badly neglected in this provice CHAMPION ANCWL ladies and their families go to private Hospitals. So these ladies are only behind Zuma for one thing. These are a bunch of clueless, useless old aunties who just sit arount and stuff their faces with cake from the taxpayers money. I have yet to see the ANCWL do any good, only time they get excited when Zuma's spear appears.

  • Matlala - 2012-10-02 07:28

    I think EC is a lost province. I do not think that it will ever produce people who are good leaders, people who stand for truth under thick and thin. Born In EC, I left to better run province, and miss my place, it makes me sick when mothers clearly have lost their dignity or they hope their daughters or themselves to be Mr Pres. wife. Zuma and Montlanthe have lost it already. There are a lot of good leaders within the ANC except these two who can lead the country well. Gwede has no respect of himself so he must not even try.

  • keithronald.wildschut - 2012-10-02 22:14

    Mangaung can make or break the ANC.If we are not careful the leadership struggle can cost us dearly.To my leaders please show some integrity and leadership.It becomes more and more difficult to defend our organisation if you behave like vultures.Powermongering is taking our beloved organisation down the drain.I find it strange that some leaders are now stating that they did not agree with the disciplinary actions against Julius Malema.History will be harsh to all of us who love this organisation.We don't need character assasination to become leaders in the organisation.Lets get our house in order and take the country to another level.To the Zuma's,Motlantle's,Sexwale's,Posa's of this world please put the organisation above your own interest.We are not finish with correcting the ills of the past, but if are fighting and biting each other like this the opposition will benefit.Let the win of the DA in the SRC-elections at NMMU be a warning to us.Our in fighting will cost us dearly.What is needed now more then ever is a unified ANC.United we will stand,divided we will certainly we will be defeated in future.Forward to a stronger and unified African National Congress.

      patrickmpanyana.mogwaneng - 2012-10-03 13:55

      Keith ,the mistake ANC made was to put DJ Zuma in charge.He will never answer any question if he does not have notes with him.Bad enough he struggle to read those note.What do you expect ? Ask him about dancing then he takes the lead.So we must first get the right people in the right position,then we can talk about unity.I just hope that by now you know that Zuma is busy milking the country 203M.Does he put the people first ? The answer is big no.Everything is about himself.So he must go.Then we can talk unity.
