SOUTH African President, Jacob Zuma stays in power after motion of #NoConfidence against him was defeated for the 8th time in parliament. The African National Congress (ANC) provincial secretary, Dakota Legoete said they salute the steadfastness and principled stance of ANC Members of Parliament (MPs) who stood
by their movement and defended the people’s revolution by defeating the
motion of no confidence brought forward by opposition parties.
“The ANC has been down this road before and we will continue defending the right of South African voters to elect their preferred leader as they did with President Jacob Zuma. As the ANC in Bokone Bophirima, we are acutely aware of what the opposition parties will say after they’re once again defeated.
“Because they will not want to admit defeat, we know that they will either say one or more of the following. They will say they made a mark, showed courage, the ANC is panicking, and the ANC MPs are cowards. They will further say ANC puts corruption first and South Africa second,” Legoete said.
He further said opposition parties will again say they will punish the ANC in 2019 or
ANC MPs were intimidated. Legoete added that it is clear that the anti-Zuma coalition campaign has failed dramatically and will never rise again.
“The task of the ANC is to continue intensifying its radical socio-economic transformation and a non-racial order in this country. We urge opposition parties to unite behind the programme of building non-racialism, unity and deepen democracy.
“The ANC will continue to humble itself and intensify its historical, unbreakable bond with the people of South Africa,” Legoete concludes.
