SACP warns of attempt to disband Gauteng ANC's leadership
SACP says the position is unsustainable because the ANC lost support across the country.
JOHANNESBURG - As the African National Congress (ANC)'s National Executive Committee (NEC) continues its meeting in Irene this morning, the South African Communist Party (SACP) says it believes there will be an attempt by some to convince the NEC to disband the leadership of the Gauteng ANC.
But it says that position is unsustainable because the ANC lost support across the country in last week's local elections.
The SACP also says the ANC must ask itself if it really was only urban black voters who based their voting decisions on how the party handled the Nkandla scandal.
The SACP's Alex Mashilo said: "The fact of the matter is that you can't compartmentalise what's happening at local level and separate it from the broader national perspective that's unfolding in the country."
