ANC's Mashatile argues discussions not done out of spite at eThekwini conference

ANC Treasurer General Paul Mashatile says there's nothing that can be done to stop national leaders from having discussions with delegates - even at regional conferences.

JOHANNESBURG - Mashatile's views come on the back of KwaZulu-Natal’s Sihle Zikalala complaining that leaders interfered in the conference business of regions during the eThekwini leadership contest earlier this month.1 hour ago “Our comrades will be affected but we are listening to the people.this month reported that Ramaphosa and his allies had called for the ANC to rule that criminally charged party members should not be eligible to stand for election to any position.Subscribers can listen to this article The ANC's NEC resolved that members affected by the step-aside rule will no longer be eligible to contest for party positions.

Zikalala subsequently told Eyewitness News that leaders at national level must call embattled national executive committee member Zweli Mkhize to order.WATCH: Zikalala: Zweli Mkhize's conduct undermines the leadership of the ANC in KwaZulu-Natal Footage emerged on social media of Mkhize engaging with a caucus linked to corruption-accused eThekwini Chairperson Zandile Gumede.“Here we are protecting the organisation and not ourselves — and once you put the interests of the ANC first, you have to make difficult decisions that may affect even your friends in the organisation or comrades that you like — but the ANC must come first.Gumede was recently re-elected the position of chair in the ANC’s largest region.In a statement on Tuesday, the ANC said the NEC had agreed that those facing criminal charges “should not be allowed to stand for a position” in any of the branch, regional, provincial and national conferences.Mkhize is believed to be attempting to build up a campaign to contest for a top position at the ANC's National Conference in December.Magashule is on suspension after failing to voluntarily step aside when he was charged in the corruption case in the Free State.Speaking during a media briefing on Wednesday, Mashatile said these engagements were part of ANC life.It's a major victory for the party's president, Cyril Ramaphosa, and his allies, who have been pushing for organisational renewal, particularly the cleaning up of the corruption-tainted image of the ANC.

“You know, you can’t take away informal meetings in the ANC.“There are some, if you follow public discourse, who are saying you are making this decision because you want to prevent so-and-so.People like to talk.”.So somebody can read it that way, that you are doing this to prevent so-and-so.
