Nominations for Zuma, Motlanthe

2012-11-12 08:47

Johannesburg - The ANCWL in KwaZulu-Natal has nominated President Jacob Zuma for re-election as party president, while the ANC's Liliesleaf Farm branch in Gauteng favours Deputy President Kgalema Motlanthe, according to reports on Monday.

The Star newspaper quoted the African National Congress Women's League provincial chairperson, Celiwe Madlopha, as saying it would also back businessman Cyril Ramaphosa as deputy president, Baleka Mbete as chairperson, and Gwede Mantashe as secretary-general.

KwaZulu-Natal Premier Zweli Mkhize was nominated as treasurer general at a nominations conference in Pietermaritzburg, and Jesse Duarte as deputy secretary-general.

According to The Star the ANC's Liliesleaf Farm branch, based in Midrand, had nominated Deputy President Kgalema Motlanthe for ANC leader.

The ruling party will elect new leaders at its national conference in Mangaung in the Free State in December.

"As a leader of society, the ANC is requesting comrade Kgalema as a matter of urgency to restore that lost confidence, lest we go through the same political cul-de-sac that all African liberation movements went through after their 20 years in power, or lose to the DA in 2014," The Star quoted from a statement by the branch.

    There's nothing more manly than a man who can support more than one wife, dance with the tribe, support a royal family, charm the ladies and rule a country without lifting a finger. Zuma for second term! -ANCWL

      nhlapop - 2012-11-12 09:34

      Are you smoking Nyaope. Zuma is not good enought to run this country.

      terrylee.heuer - 2012-11-12 10:05

      I think Tony is being sarcastic just read his reply to Sakhile's comment!! He weote this as if its from the ANCWL!!!

      nosiphom.mazibuko - 2012-11-12 10:45

      And everyone just misses the irony, great one Tony, I feel you!!!

      Tony-Lapson - 2012-11-12 10:47

      And I'll feel you back, random citizen.

      sean.carbutt - 2012-11-12 10:51

      Reading this article has a distinct resemblence to the movie, Dumb and Dumber. Oh well, better the devil you know

      ansie.b.badenhorst - 2012-11-14 13:31

      Zuma MUST win in Mangaung! In this way the country will deteriorate even more. Eventually more and more people will start voting for the DA. Come 2014 elections!!!!!

  • werner.vandeventer - 2012-11-12 09:00

    To lose to the DA is the only hope people in sa have. The anc is just plain pathetic, thats the most proper way i can put it.

      tim.gordon.5011516 - 2012-11-12 14:38

      Its amazing that one of the ANC's own branches believes the ANC could be beaten by the DA. The ANC must have fallen further than I thought (rubs hands in glee).

      a18nukem - 2012-11-13 12:00

      I agree with Werner, the only hope for this country is for the ANC to lose power completely. Motlanthe has shown in the past he is not willing to play the presidential role, and he just turned into a puppet for the ANC. He will effect absolutely no positive change in this country if he somehow manages to become President. The ANC is completely corrupt to the core, there is no fixing that period.

  • sakhile.gamede - 2012-11-12 09:01

    What has happened to you my ANC,u were so beautiful,why my ANC,why my ANC!!!TALK TO US,YOUR PEOPLE

      storm.trooper.125 - 2012-11-12 09:13

      it started when leaders made promises to members they wil get jobs even if u dont qualified for the job.. JOBS FOR PALS!! anc give jobs to ppl who was a freedom fighter and who was in prison but had no clue how to run a company/departments...thers so many qualified,educated black south africans that can run a department..but jobs are only available to those who was in exiled & in prison...

      Tony-Lapson - 2012-11-12 09:14

      As long as the ANC knows that they will always have the peoples support, they will take it for granted and lose track. It is time for the people to show that the desicion is up to them. They should consider voting in a different party in to government, just to remind them how they got into power.

      nosiphom.mazibuko - 2012-11-12 10:50

      The power is not with the ANC but the people, only the people abuse their power and complain afterwards - use your power right - lets give them max 45% in Parliament, and you will see how the contry will start to function. With an absolute majority, you will never get the country to work. When the other parties attempted the vote of no confidence against Zuma, the only defence the ANC could present was that, they have the majority, therefore the motion will not pass. They did not defend Zuma based on his suitability for office, but they used the majority. Take that awy form them, they will be foreced to perform!

  • beverly.young3 - 2012-11-12 09:12

    YAY!!! I saw this on M & G yesterday............bye bye Zuma...

  • Eterni80 - 2012-11-12 09:20

    a vote for Zuma is like not flushing after you're done.

      colin.dovey - 2012-11-12 09:50

      And then it is blocked

  • issa.kabudula - 2012-11-12 09:25

    ANC got what it takes to develop the country - the problem lies in the comradeship where self enrichment is the way to go, forgetting our Freedom Charter and struggle for peace and development. If the comrades can go back to the times of apartheid, where opportunities were given to some and not some, where freedom of movement was restricted and where life of non white was cheap - and now people are seeing no change is a question which need 1000 answers. Big budget we hear them on the radios and print media but their effect to the development too minimal - where is these figures of money goes?

      storm.trooper.125 - 2012-11-12 09:38

      how can the anc develop this country..when anc made south africa BRAIN DRAIN!!! if u dnt undersand the meaning BRAIN the term..anc & its partners freed south africa & gave oportunities to those who never had it...but now they going down..declining rapidly...bcoz of greediness..

      morne.demeillon - 2012-11-12 09:58

      Issa,people get what they vote for and they cast their vote through empty promises. If competent leaders was selected, you would have seen a whole different picture.

      joe.irwin.50 - 2012-11-12 10:20

      issa. The party is only as good as the people who run it, and they were selected by the members. Get the correct people at the helm and the results will follow.

  • Montagnes.Bleues - 2012-11-12 09:37

    I wonder how long it will be before these charlatans are exposed as these others were - what with such volumes of false promises?

  • T_T - 2012-11-12 09:37

    I wonder why opposition parties prefer Mothlante over Zuma because they don't like ANC as a whole, i think this is the down fall of the ANC because they know Mothlante will bring Malema back as he said, once Malema is in power again South Africa is going down so the ANC is, poeple will leave ANC and vote for DA in 2014 , so the opposition parties are planning ANC's end by pushing for Mothlante for President !!!

      ngobesez - 2012-11-12 12:40

      i m glad i m not the only one to see that! If Monthlante wins at Mangaung, Malema will be free to terrorize white (farmers)again, threaning them with expropriation without compensation.

  • nhlapop - 2012-11-12 09:43

    If Zuma cant read the speach that he wrote by himself, how the hell are we expecting him to be a President of this country for second term. Friday when he delivered the speach for Thabo Mbeki memorial lecturer he said TM born in 1994. Thats the problem when we SA citisen elect leaders who are not educated, because we alect leader based on the struggle not realising that education must also play important role when we elect leaders. Thabo Mbeki and Nelson Mandela was the best Leaders that we ever had since 1994. So Zuma must just step down and focus on obtaining his matric qualification, and myb when hes done we can think about what can we offer him in Music industgry because hes a good singer.

  • Spha - 2012-11-12 09:59

    Does it matter a F%%#, who takes over the ANC, there's no good men left in there.

  • morris.khunou - 2012-11-12 10:29

    let DA members join the ANC so as in their wisdom help choose the learders they want.

  • Olembe - 2012-11-12 11:52

    Mr Zuma is not bad; they only issue is africanism, traditionalism, tribalism ect...

  • lynne.barker.7 - 2012-11-12 15:15

  • january.malatji - 2012-11-12 18:31

    I belive Mothlante can bring change in our peoples lives and the Organisation its self. Zuma has failed to lead his cabinet and the Country. Power seekers used him to get where they are today. Mothlante for president

      LizaBiassoniHall - 2012-11-14 13:34

      The corruption is unending. Will the rest of the party stop stealing from the people of South Africa in need of housing, medicine, education... Let's wait and see!
