SACP: Zuma doesn't understand concept of reason anymore
The SACP says that it will consider what measures it must take for the African National Congress (ANC) to take it seriously, following the latest Cabinet reshuffle.
JOHANNESBURG - The South African Communist Party (SACP) says that if President Jacob Zuma thinks that by removing its leader Blade Nzimande from Cabinet will silence the organization, then he is very mistaken.
The party says that it will consider what measures it must take for the African National Congress (ANC) to take it seriously.
Members of the SACP who remain in Cabinet, who serve in the executive, have been advised to stay there and continue to fight corruption.
The SACP's Solly Mapaila says that it’s clear that there is no way to reason with President Zuma.
"They should have said 'don't do it. If you do it, we'll come out and differ with you.' Maybe that's how you would have had a sense of caution. If you reason with him, where we've known that over a period of time, he doesn't understand the concept of reason anymore."
