Today, the African National Congress (ANC) National Executive Committee (NEC) or the ANC NEC, as the ‘No Confidence’ Motion tabled to question the rule of President Jacob Zuma. Again, the ‘No Confidence’ vote against him failed. This was expected, since it hasn’t been able to pass in the National Assembly twice. Why should it be possible to do it in-house?
President Zuma is reported to get the total of 18 ANC leaders voting for demise of the Executive. But that wasn’t enough. It was so not enough, as the ANC NEC has enough of loyal cronies who needs Zuma. Therefore, 54 other ANC leaders voted against the Motion. Meaning that the possible stepping down isn’t happening now, as the Party themselves and the key leadership are still supporting President Zuma. Today is the day when the ANC party itself didn’t see what they have become.
The ANC of today isn’t the party who liberated the people and promised development for all South Africans. Now it is the party who are working together with corporate corrupt elite and the growing cronyism around the President. They are not developing the townships, neither creating the industrial and economic development that the Republic deserves.
The President even became like this when the Motion was in discussion:
“I have been quiet because I don’t want to harm the ANC, so continue attacking me in the media and you will see,” News24 reports the president as saying” (…) “News24 reports a source at the NEC saying that this was the angriest they had ever seen the president. The source further said that the president used his closing comments to issue his warning to leaders to stop criticising him in public. Zuma is also reported to have told the meeting that he did not understand the calls for him to step down, as he was not standing for re-election at the party’s December elective conference” (SA Breaking News, 2017).
So that the President is blind or ignorant isn’t easy to see. As he doesn’t want to listen, because he believes that he deserves to rule, even as he has enough counts of corruptions and the State of Capture report. Clearly he must know that current state of Gupta relationship and the Companies they own in cahoots with him is giving economical benefit to both. This is tiring the looting of state reserves for the Zupta. That cannot continue. The ANC is now in a state where they are accepting the looting and the maladministration. This with favors towards the ANC cronies. Therefore the reputation of South Africa is also falling. The one in-charge of that is President Zuma!
Zuma and his administration, which is parts of the ANC NEC who voted for him and letting him. He is man who want it like this and earns his fortune on it. The same is done by his cronies, that is why they don’t wont to let him go. They have all forgotten the charters and the pledges of the past. They are all eating and not caring for the ones who they represent, the workers, the unemployed and the youth. The ANC have forgotten the people and who they represent, they are now only making sure they eat. Peace.
