[LISTEN] Will SA see another ANC breakaway party?

Cape Talk | A political analyst says there’s no room in South Africa for a breakaway party.

CAPE TOWN – The African National Congress (ANC) is reportedly at risk of another split as members prepare for the national conference where they’ll elect a new leader, according to the party’s deputy secretary-general Jessie Duarte.

In an interview with Bloomberg, Duarte said there was intense jostling to replace President Jacob Zuma and for other top positions in the party.

“The concern is that the losing group could break away to form a new party, as has happened in the lead up to or after previous ANC elective conferences,” she is quoted as saying.

The Congress of the People (Cope) and Economic Freedom Fighters (EFF) are breakaway parties.

Julius Malema, who was the ANC youth wing leader, established the EFF following his expulsion on 24 April 2012.

Cope, however, was formed by members who supported former president Thabo Mbeki during the 2007 conference when Zuma took control of the ANC.

In the audio above, Dumisani Hlophe, a political analyst, says it’s unlikely that there’ll be a breakaway party.
