Pockets of disunity in some provinces

2012-12-16 13:35

Bloemfontein - The lead-up to the ANC's last national conference five years ago was fraught with divisions, President Jacob Zuma said on Sunday.

"The road to Polokwane was full of division and turbulence," he said during his political report.

"It was necessary that we start healing the organisation and working for unity after the conference."

Zuma became president of the ANC at the Polokwane conference, defeating former president Thabo Mbeki.

He said the new leadership elected at Polokwane had to go to each province and heal the divisions.

"Some successes were made, while some provinces still have pockets of factionalism and disunity," he said.

    "Pockets of disunity" - translation... "people taking a stand for what they believe in" We can only hope

      The right translation is: "people positioning themselves to reap the benefits for themselves".

    I cant help but feel pity for poor Zuma.He does have brains as far as Im concerned but his tendencies to give absolute power to MECs have killed his integrity and reliability.But I beg to differ on 'pockets of disunity'.I see a party that is spiraling down instead.We need to go back to basics but who wants that when the alternative to enrich onself seems more attractive?

    The president of the country is talking 4rm mangaung.

      I hear - something about finding a cadre to make a plan to plan how to run the country and something about Bricks, I am sure he meant BRIX though.

      What is 4rm in English?

    Anc leaders that are not corrupt are not in goodstanding.This anc should delegate government to capable people.

      I think this is time for God to send His own to save this world.The corruption is now ruling this world to an extent that no one sees the wrong in that. we are being ruled by corruption.

    Roughly translated it means - some of those cadres have brains and want to think for themselves.

    "Pockets of disunity in some provinces" I will say in all SA, desunity and dissatisfaction.
