Makhosi Khoza: There is no way the ANC can self-correct
Khoza says the ruling party has failed to remove what she has described as a 'morally handicapped' head of state and is incapable of self-correcting.
DURBAN - Former African National Congress MP Makhosi Khoza says corruption has thrived in the party due to divisions created in society and has called on citizens to unite.
Khoza was speaking at an event in Durban on Wednesday.
#MakhosiKhoza Those who feel they are not getting justice will not direct their frustrations at the state but will direct it at each other. That’s the reality of this province. Corruption thrives on divisions and when we see each other as enemies. ZN— EWN Reporter (@ewnreporter) November 29, 2017
She says the ANC must be honest about the state of the organisation because it is losing power fast.
“You lost Johannesburg and it doesn’t say anything to you? You lost four metros out of eight in one election and you think things are normal? Hang on one second.”
Khoza says the ruling party has failed to remove what she has described as a “morally handicapped” head of state and is incapable of self-correcting.
“There is no way that the ANC can self-correct. There is just no way.”
#MakhosiKhoza There is no way the ANC can self-correct. There is just no way. When you have leaders stand up and disassociate themselves from the removal of Minister Gordhan and Jonas. Khoza questions where the leadership is. ZN— EWN Reporter (@ewnreporter) November 29, 2017
Khoza says the ANC is disillusioned about how much power it still yields in society and missed an important moment on 7 April.
“All we want is for you to remove this extremely handicapped head of state.”
Khoza says if corruption continues at this scale, citizens will revolt.
“If we continue to ignore the pain, poverty and suffering of our people, just like the Berlin Wall, the people in Alex will walk into Sandton and pull down those walls.”
#MakhosiKhoza We’re the only province in the country where we spend so much money to have our leaders faces on billboards. I really don’t understand the obsession of the leaders in KZN and their faces on billboards. I don't. ZN— EWN Reporter (@ewnreporter) November 29, 2017
#MakhosiKhoza We have allowed eThekwini to be captured by the corrupt who don't care about service delivery and the poor. ZN— EWN Reporter (@ewnreporter) November 29, 2017
Khoza made her first public appearance since resigning from the ANC and Parliament earlier this year.
She is now going to lead a new political party named “Change” ahead of the 2019 elections.
