ANC KZN: Zuma's son has until midnight to withdraw Gordhan, Hanekom statements
In an open letter, Edward Zuma described Members of Parliament Pravin Gordhan and Derek Hanekom as askaris who defend “white monopoly capital”.
The national ANC says the president’s son and his comments deviate from the policy position of the party and undermine its non-racial project.
Edward Zuma has vowed not to withdraw his comments and has challenged both Gordhan and Hanekom to sue him if needs be.
KZN ANC Spokesperson Mdumiseni Ntuli says he has until midnight to change his tune.
The KZN ANC says if Zuma does not withdraw his statements, it will act swiftly to ensure the president’s son appears before its disciplinary committee.
