ANC membership rolls manipulated

2012-11-07 09:50

Johannesburg - The Eastern Cape ANC believes membership records are being manipulated and the system needs an overhaul, the Dispatch Online reported on Wednesday.

The province will ask the national elective conference to be held in December at Mangaung to implement a "card system" that will help new ANC members keep proof of their status, ANC provincial spokesperson Mlibo Qoboshiyane told the publication.

The province officially lost more than 35 000 members after recent membership audits.

Qoboshiyane said the current system was open to manipulation as all membership records are kept by branch secretaries who might disappear with those records.

This made it difficult to hold branch meetings as there was no way to prove who qualified to participate.

    All figures released by the ANC are manipulated. Crime Stats, matric pass rates, membership. They rely on the public's ignorance to hide their incompetence.

    Can we believe any information given out by the ANC as it seems just about every notice emmanating from their officials has been manipulated to suit the occasion.

    Practically EVERYTHING the ANC touches.... turns to S**T!

      Apartheid to blame!!!!

  • frans.visserdsb - 2012-11-07 10:24

    Nobody thinks this is sinister? the province with the least support for Zuma suddenly has 35 000 less members, therefore less delegates to the elective conference, and the province with the highest support for Zuma (KZN) suddenly has a lot more ANC members and thus more delegates? a couple of weeks before Mangaung? Really?

  • elvis.sibuyi - 2012-11-07 10:25

    I agree with you 100% on that issue of manipulation..when we were about to nominate for mangaung we had a lesser membership record and then on the actual day of nomination we were mulplied by 3..i thnk the card system will do..

  • cfakazi - 2012-11-07 10:28

    That is the most unfortunate truth and it is or has become an ANC phenomenon country wide. Cards are not issued lately and if you ask you get a feeling as though you are asking too much. When a member doesn't appear on the register there is very little s/he can do.

  • gandanga.tororo - 2012-11-07 10:29

    Lets fix the issue(s) b4 Mangaung; please. We may find that they are only 300 delegates from KZN!?

  • mosamedi.ephraim - 2012-11-07 10:42

    It's truth.The youth league is the master manipulator.Their members are even boasting that in their league those who don't toar the line their names are removed if they are delegates at conference.The Eastern Cape must push their resolution to be discussed in Mangaung.

  • steve.gibson.146612 - 2012-11-07 11:12

    Did anyone in their right mind expect anything else????

  • Thabo Dijoe - 2012-11-07 11:20

    Eastern cape must just chill, membership drops because some membership have expired and never renewed after audit results. its happening everywhere in SA

      steve.gibson.146612 - 2012-11-07 11:35

      Oh so nobody dies in KZN a miracle they all come back to life and multiply in KZN.ECape should find out how it is done!

  • altus.kirsten - 2012-11-07 21:33

    ANC cheating themself...a first for me!

  • NKAISANA - 2012-11-09 12:18
