It appears as if the ANC’s Gauteng Provincial Conference could go longer than anticipated

For the sake of emphasis, GP conference can never be progressive nor work towards the motive forces of the NDR and it's objectives because the other one is a Phala Phala boy whilst the other is a Mafios with Alex beginnings, that is why I'm saying we are going to weaken GP by dividing it going to the December conference not unless a miracle happens that whomever wins the conference maintains ANC identity, and culture in terms of ANC's radical left conference resolutions and policies, then l would be proven wrong.

In Thabo Mbeki we had a brilliant and orderly President, if only President Cyril Ramaphosa assumed Presidency straight after Thabo, South Africa today would be a better place to live in. To whom was Mbeki good? Was he good at alienating people living with HIV and public servants?

Ramaphosa is out to destroy Mkhwebane

The regional elections campaign especially the support showed toward Thulajay is an indication that the region can overcome the permanent division that has robbed us of service delivery unfortunately, I'm not particularly impressed by a cosmetic unity without purpose for our sakes I hope there is a purpose to supporting the team and for them wanting to lead even if no clear vision and intent was shared, the knowledge of the history and the political battles between comrades in their quest to lead the ANC in the region, suggests nothing in terms of what to expect when the same person is a leader.

It's even worse, Cyril is selling what's supposedly should be employment institutions in SOES after when he said government is not responsible for employmentI hope you guys can now connect the dots especially slow learners, kleva blacks nothing wrong that DA is doing which is no different from Cyril's modus operandi how could you guys complain about just over hundred jobs when Cyril is responsible for the above mentioned, and you see nothing wrong with him but complains when Thuma mina partner is upholding what Cyril is famous of through DANC partnership, how many jobs that Cyril has saved and or created so far except for the imaginary one million jobs he created in Stellenbosch, have you ever seen the jobs ?
