In a scathing attack on President Jacob Zuma, Senior Eastern Cape ANC heavyweight Thobile Mhlahlo last night admitted that the firing of former finance minister, Nhlanhla Nene, was done incorrectly and without due process.
The far-reaching impact of this catastrophic decision has shredded the economy, crippled our currency and destroyed jobs.
During a debate on Bay TV in Port Elizabeth last night where the DA’s Nqaba Bhanga MP squared up against political counterparts, Mhlahlo cracked under pressure and turned his back on Zuma.
By admitting that the ANC’s national leadership continues to make poor decisions, Mhlahlo has thus confirmed that Zuma’s actions are effectively destroying the party, and the country.
This comes in the wake of the major ANC concession which saw President Zuma embarrassingly buckle in front of the Constitutional Court on the powers of the Public Protector, relating to the scandalous construction of his Nkandla Estate.
As a senior member of the ANC’s Nelson Mandela Bay Regional Task Team, Mhlahlo’s admissions paint a picture of factionalism, infighting and a rapidly deteriorating organisation.
More and more divisions are arising due to Zuma’s compromised and incoherent leadership, characterised by various senior ANC leaders and influencers contradicting and denouncing the actions of the President and multiple cabinet ministers.
Given the consistently poor service delivery record of the ANC in government, framed by perpetual corruption and increasing unemployment, this additional revelation of internal division highlights the urgent need for change.
Change that will fight corruption, create jobs and ensure service delivery excellence in Nelson Mandela Bay, and across the country.
Change is coming to South Africa and our vote will be the catalyst. Let’s build a nation we can all be proud of, one where freedom, fairness and opportunity exist for all.
