Mantashe: ANC must change its tactics
The ANC's Gwede Mantashe says that the ruling party needs to regain the trust of the people.
JOHANNESBURG - African National Congress (ANC) Secretary-General Gwede Mantashe says the ruling party needs to change its tactics, especially when it comes to sitting on reports, which should result in action being taken straight away.
Mantashe was referring to the ANC's loss of support during the local government elections, emphasizing that firing President Jacob Zuma would not resolve the many challenges the party faces.
He told members of the Black Management Forum in Midrand yesterday that the ANC needs to regain the trust of the people.
Mantashe also says that one major challenge is that many ANC members have "sat on reports," adding they would be dealt with after the elections.
"You have the problem of Pikitup. The mayor of Johannesburg takes that report, fires the CEO of Pikitup. They compile a report and sit on this. This must change."
