The ANC race: Do you care?
Malakano Tshitereke Eric Limpopo
My wish for the December ANC elective conference is a united ANC under collective unity for the purpose of the organisation under the leadership of comrade Cyril Ramaphosa. I’m appealing to the whole membership to rally behind this collective during and after nomination, and beyond the conference, for the ANC to emerge after the 2019 national government election to remain in government to further its objective of service delivery to our poor communities.

Dr Nkosazana Dlamini-Zuma is the only future for South Africa. She is the best and a great leader.
Who cares who wins the ANC’s presidency race? The writing is on the wall – Number One has completed the obituary of the ANC.

Of course we care who wins the race. It affects the economy of this country as well as the general population. We need a uncorrupt government, starting from the head.
Things are falling apart in the ANC. Every dark cloud has a silver lining, so we must hope that the party will get just more than 50% in 2019, but that will only happen if Cyril dons the mantle of president and is deputised by anyone but Nkosazana. If the party does not get more than 50%, a coalition government will be upon us and the biggest drawback is that such governments are notoriously fragile and therefore unstable – even in Europe, where they are in vogue.

No matter who comes in, the ANC is a sinking ship that is dragging South Africa down with it. They are brazenly racist, violent and unashamedly amoral. What we will look like as a country by 2019 is easy to predict. Our country is at war, but one side – the ANC – is fighting its own citizens! So, who wins the race within the ANC is immaterial to the country’s wellbeing. Forces outside of the ruling party are going to have to put a stop to the maniacal mess.
I do not care who wins, as long as we do not have another ANC president in our country.

Ramaphosa is the right choice, never mind the race.

I don’t care who is the president of the ANC. They are all corrupt killers who care nothing about the poor blacks, coloureds, Indians and white people, but only for themselves, their families and friends. They are worse than the apartheid government.

I just don’t care; come 2019, the ANC will be blown away. What we fought for is used as toilet tissue. The liberation fight was all in vain. We allowed one man to kill a 100-year-old movement.
I don’t care about who leads the ANC. It just has to lose at the polls in 2019.

I do not care who wins the ANC presidency race because the organisation has lost its moral compass and it is fighting with itself. It will not make any difference, as the party is beyond redemption. In my view, if Ramaphosa wins, the people of KwaZulu-Natal, particularly Zulus, will not vote for the ANC in 2019 because, since Jacob Zuma became president, he has promoted tribalism in his party. It is still fresh in my mind when his supporters wore T-shirts with a picture of Zuma and the words “100% Zulu Boy”. To me, that was pure tribalism. If Dlamini-Zuma wins, Zulus will vote overwhelmingly for the ANC. I am not sure if Zweli Mkhize can garner sufficient support to win the ANC presidency, as he is not trusted in his home province and he is endorsed by Zuma and his supporters in KwaZulu-Natal. Lindiwe Sisulu is a good politician, but she is wasting her time because she does not a constituency. Anyway, I do not care who wins because the ANC has become a vehicle for corruption.
