Change or face removal, Sexwale says

Johannesburg - Human Settlements Minister Tokyo Sexwale has called on ANC leaders to change or face removal, according to a report on Monday.

"Young people say: 'If you don't change, we will ask for your removal at the next conference. And the conferences are always in December, just like Mangaung," Sexwale said in Alexandra in Johannesburg on Sunday.

The Times
newspaper quoted him as saying: "At these conferences, we change leaders, not because we want to change leaders but because the struggle is about moving forward."

Sexwale, who was delivering a lecture on the life of former ANC president Alfred Xuma, sought to play down rumours that he would challenge President Jacob Zuma at the African National Congress' elective conference in Mangaung in the Free State in December.

"Now, sometimes people always say: 'The way he is talking, he is talking about Mangaung.' I am not standing, I am not running for anything but I am also not running away from anything," said Sexwale.

      He talks too much!Was he not one of the people who betrayed Mbeki and helped out him? He will make a very bad leader, definitely not presidential material.

      No amukelani, he definitely is not our last hope, but if he can get the majority of the youth on his side and form Cope II or call the new party what you want, then he will go down as a true leader.
