Bad discipline will 'bleed ANC'

2012-12-16 19:30

Bloemfontein - If the ANC does not pay attention to discipline the movement will "bleed to death", secretary general Gwede Mantashe said on Sunday.

"Factions have given themselves names in different provinces," Mantashe said during his political report to the party's 53rd national conference in Mangaung.

"Therefore factionalism had led to the virtual collapse of discipline in some ANC structures."

He said tough decisions on discipline needed to be taken.

Mantashe lashed out at the ANC Youth League, saying it was acting in a similar manner to forces who were against the party.

"The ANCYL is a body of opinion within the ANC. Therefore it must complement and supplement the ideas of the movement.

"In the public eye it makes the ANC... look like its tailing behind the ANCYL," Mantashe said.

    Well, Gwede, that comes from tolerating what really is intolerable just because they're "comrades" and they trot out all the nice little buzzwords like "revolutionary" and "transformation" and "progressive" and "forward to" and "towards" and so forth.

    Your president leader started the trend anyway. Are you now surprised? Or is it that you call undisciplined members those ones who disagree with you? Remember the Arab Spring? People are now starting to wake up and you are getting scared! The African Awakening!
