ANC gets thumbs-up from SACP for handling of SABC debacle
The ANC has come in for some praise from its alliance partner the South African Communist Party for its handling of the SABC debacle in Parliament last week
Launching the SACP’s Red October Campaign in eThekwini on Sunday‚ SACP general secretary congratulated the ANC for the leadership in Parliament.
“The ANC this week made our people proud by means of the posture it adopted in Parliament‚ a decisive advance to sort out corporate capture and persistent governance decay at the SABC.
“Two members of the SABC board had to resign on Wednesday‚ 5 October before Parliament‚ as a result of the ongoing decisive leadership intervention by the ANC‚” Nzimande said.
“This is what the ANC needs to do in its own organisational and leadership ranks‚ as well as in the ANC-led government as a whole and throughout the state‚” he added.
“By so doing the ANC is restoring the trust and will re-earn the confidence of the people that it had lost. This has to be consistent‚ and must intensify from now on. It must deepen as a principle of revolutionary leadership and the lifeblood not only of the ANC but the ANC-led alliance in the run up to the 2019 general election and beyond.”
