Hands off Makhosi Khoza

Observer on Saturday - - News -

JO­HAN­NES­BURG - The in­ter­nal dis­ci­plinary charges against vo­cal ANC MP Makhosi Khoza are un­called for says for­mer ANC trea­surer gen­eral Mathews Phosa.

Phosa came to Khoza’s de­fence on Thurs­day call­ing for “sober” minds‚ say­ing he won’t be part of an or­gan­i­sa­tion that is full of “zom­bies” where every­one agrees.

He was speak­ing on the side­lines of the Agri Western Cape’s an­nual congress in Raw­sonville.

Phosa was one of the key­note speak­ers at the farm­ing con­fer­ence where is­sues on land and agri­cul­ture were dis­cussed. “The mea­sure of a ma­ture democ­racy is not whether we all agree like zom­bies. It’s whether we are able to dis­agree and agree. That’s a mea­sure of a ma­ture democ­racy. A democ­racy of zom­bies‚ I don’t want to be­long to.

“There­fore I think the drama around Makhosi (Khoza) is un­called for. I think sober heads must pre­vail there. If com­rades hold a dif­fer­ent view‚ and there’s noth­ing wrong with it. Many peo­ple like Pravin have said it now. Pravin and I have said that you must lis­ten to your con­science.
