ANC more united, Mantashe says

2012-12-16 20:42

Bloemfontein - The ANC is in a much better state than it was five years ago, secretary-general Gwede Mantashe said on Sunday.

"We are starting by making an assertion that the ANC is much better, stronger, more united and having more capacity to deal with contradictions it has to deal with," Mantashe said in Mangaung.

"It is important for us to trace what the state of the ANC was when we came out of Polokwane."

He said this had to be done otherwise more focus would be given to recent incidents.

Delivering his organisational report at the ruling party's 53rd elective conference, Mantashe mentioned the group of African National Congress Free State members who took the party to court.

"People want to take us to court because they want to take over a good organisation."

A group of disgruntled North West ANC members also took the party to court last week in a bid to alter the province's delegation to Mangaung, but failed.

The ANC came out of its 2007 elective conference in Polokwane divided and fragmented, said Mantashe.

"We were polarised into two posts clearly divided," he said.

"We coming to this conference saying 'we came out of all those challenges intact and strong'."

      These guys should become professional standup comedians. The amount of BS coming out of Mangaung is amazing.

      Ha Ha Ha Ha Ali Baba and his 40 inner circle thieves have all but destroyed unity in the ANC and our country for that matter, never in history had their own members taken them to court. Sounds like a very desperate PR job.........................

    People want, and do, take you to court because you refuse to do the job you were hired to do. Doesn't make any difference anyway, your organisation still completely ignores any court orders handed down. In that you are indeed united - to be answerable and accountable to no-one but yourselves
