SACP condemns calls for an early ANC elective conference
SACP warned the ANC to work on a perception from supporters that it’s preoccupied with factionalism.
JOHANNESBURG - The South African Communist Party (SACP) says calls for an early African National Congress (ANC) elective conference have been purely informed by internal factionalism and has instead called for a consultative gathering ahead of the national elections.
The SACP is holding a briefing in Kempton Park where it is giving the outcomes of its central executive committee meeting this weekend.
The communist party's CEC has expressed its disappointment with the ANC's NEC utterances after the elections saying old issues were raised.
The organisation has also warned that the ruling party should work on a perception from supporters that it is preoccupied with factionalism and money politics.
SACP general secretary Blade Nzimande said, "We have to unite the broadest of the democratic and patriotic forces in the ongoing struggle to overcome the terrible legacy of colonialism."
The SACP has also condemned what it has described as the continuous harassment of Finance Minister Pravin Gordhan.
"The real question is what did the so called rogue unit in Sars uncover that has made some forces so desperate to dismantle effective capacity in Sars even risking South Africa's economic well-being in the process?"
