2012-12-18 21:08

Bloemfontein - Loud clapping and sporadic booing accompanied the announcement of ANC national executive committee (NEC) nominees in Mangaung on Tuesday.

Gauteng Premier Nomvula Mokonyane, Police Minister Nathi Mthethwa, former ANCYL treasurer Pule Mabe and Young Communist League secretary Buti Manamela's names received the loudest cheers as their names were read out by the party's electoral commission.

Former Gauteng local government MEC Humprey Mmemezi, who was fired for misusing a state-issued credit card, also got cheers.

National Youth Development Agency chairperson Andile Lungisa and Limpopo Premier Cassel Mathale were booed by delegates when their names were announced.

The conference was due to elect the NEC members.

    ANC is dominated by the holigans dat is y zuma got a landslide victory 2gether with those who showed support 4 him. To make matters worse 2many tribalistic holigans 4rm kzn flooded de mangaung conferance 2 vote der super poligamist, traditionalist Zuma. With all such scandals, I dont wish 2 judge but JZ is a super liability who is likely 2 continue 2 make deep mistakes. I dont think de kzn holigans would have accepted de results if kgalema won. They would resort 2 violance

    i have never seen or heard of a household with parents, kids, uncles n aunts that do not have problems!!problems are always there to be dealt with n to be resolved!! so i remain a member of the ANC despite its problems!!and if the ship sinks ,i will sink with it!! and if we resolve problems within the ANC the ship will rise and i will rise with it!! we just need to learn to respect each other and learn to accept each other for what we are, and work out our differences!! phambili ngomzabalazo wamaqabane!!!

      In a mature democracy voters do not have blind faith and unquestioning loyalty to one single party. It is the voter's duty to question his or her party and to consider the other options, and to cast his or her vote appropriately and wisely. So to say things like "I will sink with my party" reveals the immaturity of your democratic outlook and the immaturity of the voting South African public at large. Funny thing is, if the ANC were half competent and pursued policies which I approved of, I would consider voting for them. At the moment, there is not a chance - they don't care for people of my skin pigmentation. But I never say never, it is my duty to consider all options when it comes to voting. Capisce?

    does such a thing as a 'brain-transplant' exist? Some of the delegates need to be placed on the waiting list. Seriously >> 'Former Gauteng local government MEC Humprey Mmemezi, who was fired for misusing a state-issued credit card, also got cheers.'

  • patricia.zwane.39 - 2012-12-19 07:11

    This really shows what kind of people are representing south africans! Cheering for Memezi. Seems like you need to be corrupt to get promotion

    The saying 'honour amongst thieves' springs to mind when dealing with the anc.

    "Former Gauteng local government MEC Humprey Mmemezi, who was fired for misusing a state-issued credit card, also got cheers." ncncncnc........this really proves that if you do not have a shady business under your name you will not be voted into the top sits of the ANC...why would you want a person who was fired for misusing a credit card that did not really belong to thing money will go missing.

    With all that is happening in Mangaung and the 4000 plus delegates, I am wodering how many of these persons are presenely employed in government at state, provincial or municipal level.Therefore the cost to taxpayers must be huge if these persons are being paid and not taken leave? Also the situation may arise whereby they claim their expenses as well.
