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.
