Undis­ci­plined de­ploy­ees in ca­hoots with the op­po­si­tion

The Star Early Edition - - LETTERS - Mor­gan Phaahla

SAN­ITY pre­vailed and a se­cret a bal­lot ploy has been de­feated. The ac­tors en­light­ened us to do an in­ward anal­y­sis to get our move­ment into shape as there’s ev­i­dence of cracks from within.

The ANC lead­er­ship must re­mind de­ploy­ees that the power lies with the branches as the strate­gic centre that de­ploys cadres to re­alise the prom­ise of a bet­ter life. The NEC is the border­line be­tween branches and the ad­min­is­tra­tion.

Any re­bel­lion against a col­lec­tive de­ci­sion equals de­fy­ing the very branches that en­trusted them with the man­date to up­hold the ANC as­pi­ra­tions in their de­ploy­ments.

Such mem­bers need to do the hon­ourable thing and join the op­po­si­tion with­out any trou­bles. I do not know why it is hard to do so. Per­haps they think the ANC is an agency that cat­a­pults in­di­vid­u­als with­out con­science into po­si­tions of au­thor­ity.

Be that as it may, the ANC won elec­tions over­whelm­ingly. There’s no way an elected pres­i­dent can be re­moved by a band of undis­ci­plined de­ploy­ees in ca­hoots with op­po­si­tion forces.

The ANC doesn’t need mem­bers who re­sort to hole­and-cor­ner av­enues to col­lapse the state. They would set a prece­dent for the party res­o­lu­tions to be un­der­mined. The great­est chal­lenge is for the branches to di­vest them­selves of rene­gades veer­ing on to a de­struc­tive path.

There can be only one ANC of great men and women who stand for some­thing as a col­lec­tive, and not fall for any­thing. We don’t need to re­hash in any de­tail who they are. Suf­fice to say those cadres are of a kind, op­pos­ing those who con­sort with stooges to claim the sparkle alone on a glo­ri­fied perch.
