‘ANC will implode if factionalism, unity problems are not resolved’
Nkosazana Dlamini-Zuma has reiterated calls for unity within the ANC in order to continue what she has described as the economic struggle.
IXOPO - Former African Union commission chair Nkosazana Dlamini-Zuma says if the problems with factionalism and unity in the African National Congress (ANC) are not resolved the party will implode.
Dlamini-Zuma was speaking at a memorial lecture for anti-apartheid activist Steven Dlamimi in Ixopo, southern kwaZulu-Natal.
She has reiterated calls for unity within the ANC in order to continue what she has described as the economic struggle.
Dlamini-Zuma says comrades like Dlamini exemplified humility, selflessness and a spirit to serve the nation.
She has emphasised the importance of building cadres through political education, saying having an ANC membership does not automatically qualify a person to be considered as such.
The unofficial presidential candidate says cadres need to be stronger now more than ever as there's an economic struggle that still needs to be won.
Dlamini-Zuma says the revolution is far from over, and in order to win, unity should come first, which also means the immediate eradication of factionalism.
