I fully agree with my friend on this one @Julius_S_Malema. Until we nationalise all commanding heights of the economy- we need to restart this economy and make sure it favors the majority. Things can’t be sane again pic.twitter.com/NNULKJX6zV— Mzwandile Masina (@mzwandileMasina) May 31, 2020
The Ekurhuleni mayor was reprimanded by the ANC, and then took to Twitter, defying the governing party. He tweeted that he was not afraid of getting fired and insisted he was not a coward.
The Ekurhuleni regional leadership called on him to retract his statement.
“The ANC on its own must heighten its policy processes to all members and leaders of the party. We have told him as the executive committee to retract whatever he said,” said spokesperson Thembinkosi Nciza.
“As the executive committee, we raised the fundamentals of how the ANC works and expect him to follow the process,” he added.
