The stabbing of African National Congress Western Cape secretary Mcebisi Skwatsha is a new low in the political life of the party. The constant fight for power and positions has meant that some members of the ruling party have thrown the rule of law out the window and the rules of the jungle seem to be the order of the day.

Others have taken the recent chaos in the ANC further as they allege that the face-off between Thabo Mbeki and Jacob Zuma is a similarly ethnic in nature. Whether this is right or wrong, the country and the party will suffer from whatever sickness grips the ANC. publishes all comments posted on articles provided that they adhere to our Comments Policy.
