ANC not a stokvel - KZN chair

2012-03-17 16:07

Durban - The ANC is not about individual interests, KwaZulu-Natal chair Zweli Mkhize said in Durban on Saturday.

"There are people who believe the ANC is an investment coalition, they believe they should receive dividends for their contribution," Mkhize said.

"The ANC is not a stokvel, the ANC is not here to serve any individual."

ANC delegates in the eThekwini region, the biggest in KwaZulu-Natal gathered at the Olive Convention Centre to elect new leaders.

Mkhize said those who believed the ANC owed them something were in the wrong party.

"No one is more important than the ANC," he said.

The elections are hotly contested by health MEC Dr Sibongiseni Dhlomo and former provincial ANC Youth League leader Nhlakanipho Ntombela fighting for the chairmanship position.

"ANC must make sure it lives by the creed of democracy, different opinions are not a basis for factionalism," Mkhize said.

He said cliques and factionalism would not be tolerated.

"It is unity of the leadership that will save South Africa, it is not the division from those who want to create space for protection when they are doing wrong."

He encouraged delegates to vote for humble leaders who would subject themselves to serving the community.

    Good luck finding those "humble leaders".So far most of them have been self serving and greedy individuals with large extended families!

      Shirley that's where you are wrong,not most but all of them are there for their own benefit? Remember Shaik is looking for his Millions from your president?

      I agree, the ANC is not a stokvel.., it is a VROTVEL...

      Zweli Mkhize STOP PROMISING THEM FREE HOUSES. You make the promises and when they expect it you shout them down. Your policies are sick sick sick

    "There are people who believe the ANC is an investment coalition, they believe they should receive dividends for their contribution," Mkhize said. These thieves are like snake that eaten poison to die....they are there on their own.How can he try to say malema is rich because of ANC and now is (Malema) backing to stay because he will no longer benefit from the tenders which himself(Mkhize,Zuma and all anc close associates)are benefiting from? I dont blame Malema's efforts because Millions with tax free just come without putting an effort towards them.

  • charmaine.mcdonald2 - 2012-03-17 18:45

    More disputes with the ANC, God have mercy!

  • pws69 - 2012-03-17 20:29

    The fact that he even has to say this tells you just how deep the rot runs in the ANC.

  • Tristan - 2012-03-17 20:55

    Hey Zweli. I can see your nose growing from here. I think it's fair to say that the ANC is doing just that, serving the interests of individuals, friends and family. Almost 20 years later and we are still arguing about this. Facts are facts my friends. I would love to hear from someone who REALLY thinks that they serve ALL the people of this country.

    We all know the ANC is not a stokvel but a vrotvel

  • Helmut - 2012-03-18 07:42

    "The ANC is not here to serve any individual" - well said, Mkhize. You should also have mentioned that on a national level the ANCE government does not servbe anybody at all, except a very select group of the top brass, hence South African Kleptocracy!

  • Grant - 2012-03-18 10:42

    Anybody who supports the ANC today is stupid or so poor (thanks to the ANC) that they can't access news about what the government is doing and not doing. Certainly many at the top of the party have done very nicely but this has been done at the expence of the poor who lack basic services.

  • sandy.langenstrass - 2012-03-18 14:32

    The world is watching...I wonder what they thinking? Every day there is another minister being suspended for some form of many more? would think this should coarse an embarrassment to the ruling party...Oh..of coarse most of them are implicated as well.
