ANC national chairperson Gwede Mantashe expressed that former President Jacob Zuma should face disciplinary charges. However, the looming general elections have created obstacles in pursuing this action. Mantashe, speaking on 702, asserted that Zuma is well aware of severing ties with the governing party, as reported by EWN. Despite Zuma’s insistence on remaining an ANC member, he has been actively mobilising against the party as the public face of the newly formed uMkhonto weSizwe Party.
Acknowledging the challenges posed by the approaching elections, Mantashe emphasised the importance of documenting Zuma’s public commentary about the ANC. This documentation aims to formally present the evidence to Zuma, seeking confirmation of the termination of his ANC membership. Mantashe noted that Zuma’s recent statements have left the organisation in shock, describing Zuma’s language as reflective of an ANC of his presidency, implying a hierarchy where members served him. Mantashe concluded by asserting the principle that no individual is larger than the ANC within the ANC itself, highlighting the collective nature of the party.
