POLOTIKI | Episode 18: President Zuma's firing machine

2017-10-20 10:47

This week on Polotiki, it's all about President Jacob Zuma giving the ANC the proverbial middle finger. Listen.

He defied the ANC and reshuffled his cabinet this week – firing his biggest critic SACP general secretary Blade Nzimande.  Is he more powerful than ever and is the party a mere spectator in his calculated chess game?

News24 Politics editor Mahlatse Mahlase also speaks to newly elected ANC Veterans League president Snuki Zikalala, who said the National Executive Committee is to blame for the party's state of affairs.
