Self-ex­am­i­na­tion re­quired

Finweek English Edition - - The Finweek -

THE PO­LAR­I­SA­TION within the ANC has spread, and the me­dia con­tin­ued spec­u­lat­ing about the ex­tent and con­se­quences of a re­bel­lion un­der the lead­er­ship of Mo­siuoa Lekota and Mb­haz­ima Shilowa. For­mer min­is­ter Ron­nie Kas­rils’ out­burst about the ANC’s lack of con­cern over the im­pend­ing split caused con­sid­er­able re­ac­tion. THE WIT­NESS warned that demo­cratic prin­ci­ples must be re­spected, such as al­low­ing peo­ple to hold meet­ings freely to dis­cuss form­ing a new party. Volks­blad said the ANC mustn’t re­gard it­self greater than the Con­sti­tu­tion and must carry out deep and hon­est self-ex­am­i­na­tion. The Week­ender and Rap­port said SA is in dire need of brave and prin­ci­pled lead­er­ship.
