He stated that the ANC lead­er­ship un­der Pres­i­dent Ja­cob Zuma had failed to unite the party or take dras­tic ac­tion against se­ri­ous al­le­ga­tions of cor­rup­tion, thus ab­di­cat­ing these re­spon­si­bil­i­ties to the courts. Busi­ness Day Live (BDLive) re­ported that the fail­ure of the ANC NEC to re­solve lead­er­ship is­sues had al­lowed dis­grun­tled mem­bers to ap­proach the courts, which had de­cided many is­sues that should have been ad­dressed by the ANC lead­er­ship.

Bheki Cele is deputy min­is­ter of agri­cul­ture and an ANC na­tional ex­ec­u­tive com­mit­tee mem­ber.
