  • The ANC has called out Ekhuruleni Mayor Mzwandile Masina for saying the economy should be allowed to collapse. 
  • The party said it does not want its leaders to feed into the narrative of policy uncertainty. 
  • Masina responded that he is ready to be removed and won't be friends with "white monopoly capital".


Controversial Ekurhuleni mayor and ANC regional chairperson Mzwandile Masina has been taken to task by his party after he tweeted his support for EFF leader Julius Malema's statement that the "white economy" should collapse. 

In a statement on Monday, ANC spokesperson Pule Mabe said Masina's statement on nationalisation of the economy fell outside the confines of the party's policy position.
