Chaos in key Zuma region before Mangaung

2012-10-29 11:32

Durban - The ANC in the eThekwini region, which is a key stronghold for President Jacob Zuma, is disorganised ahead of the Mangaung elective conference in December, it was reported on Monday.

There were reports of ghost branch members, branch in-fighting and the exclusion of long standing members from the Voters' Roll, the Mercury reported.

According to the newspaper, former national police commissioner Bheki Cele had been excluded from the Voters' Roll in ward 74, Lamontvillle, Durban, ahead of the ANC's elective conference in Mangaung, in December.

Cele told the newspaper he saw nothing sinister in his exclusion, and blamed "inefficient administration".

Members whose names are not on the roll cannot be part of the Mangaung nomination process, or part of delegations to Mangaung.

Those thought to be anti-Zuma were reportedly being sidelined.

In KwaZulu-Natal, only 445 of 824 branches had held general meetings so far.

      How do two woman get two washing machines in the middle of a kitchen floor ? And then compare how much cleaner one shirt is to another. "Two washing machines in the middle of a kitchen floor."

      They will do anything and everything to hold on to power. If this works, they are gonna apply it nationally for next elections. We'll end up like Zim.

      LOL!!! This is going to be just as disorganized as his office. The proof is always in the pudding. Can't wait for the Show!!

      True, just wondering how they "verified" KZN numbers if their are issues at branch level still.

  • richard.zanner - 2012-10-29 12:06

    LOL they call this country a democracy. Zuma will go to civil war before he lets go. In fact he cannot afford to let go coz then he goes back to court for fraud charges.

  • johan.jacobs.5680 - 2012-10-29 12:12

    The last convulsions,of a desperate leader.

    Dictatorship, Zimbabwe will look like child's play in the next few years time.

  • Michael - 2012-10-29 12:49

    This headline is one of those we expect towards Mangaung, KZN is the most united province and has made its intension very clear in so far as Zuma future concern.

  • derk.woldendorp - 2012-10-29 13:22

    the road to Mangaung is already full of potholes

  • luke.dekoker - 2012-10-29 13:32

    If the found "gost" members in the 445 branches that met so far, I wonder how many will come from the graves for the balance of the 379 branches?? zuma, his king & other anc clowns will make sure that there will be many as they have not enriched themselve enough yet!!

      Jaap - 2012-10-29 13:44

      Some weeks ago there was a rabbit, oh Sh$t don't kill the rabbit - again!!

  • steve.ritchie.739 - 2012-10-29 13:42

    Hope they bolt down the chairs at Mangaung. Chair throwing at cANCer shindigs has become quite popular. Or maybe they will all arrive brandishing Knob-kierries, pangas and iron rods.

  • Hasani P - 2012-10-29 13:51

    Zuma is guaranteed of a second term, no body is contesting. The deputy has been warned of challenging the incumbent . The issue is whether the ANC will emerge as a united party from mangaung? If it does nt The ANC may loose the 2014 national election

  • gregory.jurgens - 2012-10-29 16:01

    And so the dictatorship begins with Mugabe style tactics.
