Johannesburg - ANC treasurer Mathews Phosa said no one in the ANC was assured of serving a second term, according to a report on Thursday.

The Sowetan reported that Phosa was apparently making a veiled attack on President Jacob Zuma, who hopes to remain at the helm of the party after its congress in Mangaung, in December.

"None of us must be promised a second term," Phosa was quoted as saying.

"Comrades must assess each leader on the basis of performance. Comrades must assess the collective and branches will decide who the next leadership will be."

Phosa was speaking at a dinner in Limpopo to raise funds for the construction of Peter Mokaba House, in honour of the late African National Congress Youth League president.

Phosa said ANC leaders should not wait for elections in 2014 to confront problems, but must rather communicate now and confess failures.

"We must not wait for them [ANC supporters] to burn tyres and march against us. Let's not wait for them to complain... we must confront the reality."
