Khoza no exception to party rules
WE LIVE in interesting times, populism replaced constructive engagement and uncouth behaviour has become a convenient way to express dissent.
While the right to speak one’s mind in a public gallery is to be celebrated, its latitude has boundaries. The interests of the organisation come first, and not members’ private interests. Those unable to observe the limitation of their rights have a choice to leave without acting rebelliously in order to sow divisions. One cannot say more about the integrity and allegiance of such a member.
Comrade Makhosi Khoza cannot wear an ANC hat and mobilise civil society under the guise of bravery to contravene the ANC constitution in such a callow manner.
It would be chaos if other ANC parliamentarians were to follow what she did. On the whole, her ill-discipline borders on anarchy intended to bring the name of the organisation into disrepute.
Interestingly, some within our ranks deem Khoza to have every right to express whatever she likes about the ANC without reconciling herself with the consequences thereof.
At worst, a call to rein in her deviant behaviour is perceived as a desperate measure fraught with victimisation by virtue of her being a woman. That’s nonsense constructed from ignorance. The constitution dictates that disciplinary action be taken against any delinquent member, regardless of race, gender or creed. Khoza is no exception. Vosloorus, Ekurhuleni
