Can the SACP go it alone?
Z Rikhotso via SMS Should the SA Communist Party (SACP) leave the alliance, it would be good for democracy as it is one of the oldest political parties in the country. But I doubt if the SACP will leave the ANC because some of its members have tasted honey as Cabinet ministers as well as MECs.
Should it happen and they contest elections in 2019, it would not make a big difference because it does not have a large constituency like the ANC does.
One other thing is that the SACP is currently dysfunctional and its members are only reactionaries. Furthermore, it is stated that members should keep dual membership, and this suggestion means that it will be very difficult for the SACP to leave the ANC. Good luck, Doctor Nzimande. D Vuma Gauteng I support the idea of the SACP going it alone, at least some of us would then have an alternative, a party that we can rely upon. We are really sick and tired of the ANC and its corrupted leaders. All the people who are currently defending the president have on a specific occasion visited or been associated with the Guptas.
