Mbeki survives another day

2008-09-19 00:00

Kempton Park — The vicious political fight between President Thabo Mbeki and ANC leader Jacob Zuma continued into another day after neither side emerged victorious from the first day of a meeting of the ANC national executive committee at Esselen Park on the East Rand yesterday.

Weekend Witness has learnt that the events on the East Rand are merely the part of the battle being fought in the open. The true battle rages below the surface — political trench warfare of the dirtiest type in which individuals’ roles in the liberation struggle, and in the profitable opportunities ANC connectivity has brought since 1994 — are ruthlessly exploited.
