Act on the corrupt to avoid defeat
STRANGE that the Zuma faction is now suddenly becoming conciliatory and accommodating when in the past it was the Zuma way or the highway.
To now accommodate the losing side is a bit like how when Mugabe lost the elections a way had to be found.
In politics you win or lose. That’s life and you live with it.
In the recent KZN elections the competent premier, Durban mayor and his municipal manager were sidelined (after having won on the fourth round of voting) and there is legal challenge still in the air.
Here there was no talk of compromise.
In fact, come to KZN and compromise with the former premier; then maybe there will be some seriousness in your intentions.
As for the ANCs conference, Zuma can bamboozle his delegates and party faithful but the tragedy is the average urban voter will still take Nkandla palace, the Gupta/Eskom/Molefe saga, the Gupta/Sun City/KPMG drama, the Prasa/Swifambo mess into serious consideration.
Just like Tshwane, Joburg was lost and Ekurhuleni is hanging on a thread.
Unless the ANC sets about clear rules and starts to get corrupt officials and politicians in orange overalls; the party will lose more municipalities and polling districts. Glenmore Cres, Durban North
