Fransman says no to NEC nomination

2012-12-16 20:42

Johannesburg - Western Cape ANC provincial secretary Marius Fransman has declined a nomination to the party's national executive committee, he said on Sunday.

While it was an "immense honour" to serve on the NEC, he declined in order to "fully focus on dislodging" the Democratic Alliance from power in the Western Cape in the 2014 elections.

"It is in the best strategic interest of the ANC Western Cape that as chairperson I rather remain fully committed to intensifying our programme in the province which includes unifying and rebuild our movement."

Fransman said it was in the "broader interest" of the party for him to lead the provincial organisation against the DA.

Fransman said the ANC in the province would be well represented by other nominated individuals.

    Bring it on Marius. Good on you that you have recognized the walloping by Helen and the DA. Are your efforts not to be part of the ANC nec not late though or is it an admission that you have failed as a leader of ANC in the Western Cape ?

      With all these people refusing nominations, just now they will have to force people to be on the nec

      Seems there are a number of members that don't want to be 'tainted with the corruption brush' and want to distance themselves from the 'leadership bunch'!!!

    Look at the lovely Mugshot of Marius Fransman. A Mug cos he thinks he'll ever unlodge the DA. people don't want to go backwards in the WC.

    That's a third high ranking ANC member to decline nomination to the NEC this weekend...I wonder why!

  • bryan.culross - 2012-12-16 21:23

    Why be pre-occupied with the DA? Why not with service delivery and improving the lifes of all South African's?

      Yes Bryan, I agree that is what should be done. By positively trying to dislodge a good functioning local government amounts to treason and should be dealt with accordingly. The authorities were of the opinion that the Boere-mag were attempting this and it resulted in a hearing lasting eight years. Marius Fransman on his own is attempting the same thing albeit on a smaller scale and as such it also constitutes treason.

    Fransman is and will always be a sucker for the Anc only to be spat at later by the party thats taking him for a sucker.

    A politician is someone who works up his or her gums before an election and then gums up the works afterwards. ANC has proved this time and time again. We don't need the ANC in the Western Cape.

  • Zama Mvulane - 2012-12-16 22:05

    Marius Fransman is the Western Cape ANC Provincial Chairperson and not Provincial Secretary who is Songezo Mjongile!

  • ahmien.vanderwalt - 2012-12-16 22:38

    Wishful thinking Marius! The DA is there to stay

    This guys is nothing more than a Thug. You are scum Fransman.

  • Peter Zylstra - 2012-12-17 05:31

    The WC is the only province which is properly run now Marius want's the ANC rot to take effect there as well. How stupid and selfish can one be?

    What the ANC does well is to always fight or oppose others.

  • agpretorius - 2012-12-17 08:26

    Ha ha they try and get W cape and they forgetting the other provinces are slowly turning DA.

  • ronald.vantoorn.9 - 2012-12-17 08:31

    Calculated move! Would not have made the list! As Zuma flatterer already guaranteed of political future!

  • jaco.skalkwyk.3 - 2012-12-17 09:11

    Personal comment: In the picture used, Fransman looks like a dirty cop trying to explain what happened to the 20kg of dagga that vanished from the evidence room.

  • gary.desousa.5 - 2012-12-17 10:33

    So he decided a job for life (for that is what it will take).Its easier to sit in Cape town and critizize and moan and organize looters,thugs, criminals than to actually think and do some work on the nec.

  • jacqui.daanevanrensburg - 2012-12-17 10:35

    Fransman we all know you want Lynn Brown's job. If he is the type they desire to serve, the NEC is a bunch of idiots.
