Nkosazana Dlamini-Zuma, the Cooperative Governance and Traditional Affairs minister, has been questioned by her colleagues because of her silence.
Because of her lack of aplomb, Radical Economic Transformation forces believe that if she had been elected president of South Africa in 2017, she would have been another failure.
At a time when comrades who supported her presidential campaign in 2017 are being expelled from the party, Dlamini-Zuma is accused of being too quiet.
Nkosazana Dlamini-Zuma may have begun to distance herself from the RET group that had supported her candidacy for the ANC's highest office after she was offered a place as a minister in Cyril Ramaphosa's administration.
In his findings, Chief Justice Raymond Zondo argued that if Cyril Ramaphosa had not won at Nasrec in 2017, the South African economy would have collapsed.
Rather than Nkosazana Dlamini Zuma, Cyril Ramaphosa was elected ANC president instead, according to Zondo.
Despite the fact that Tony Yengeni, another RET bigwig, filed a complaint with the Judicial Services Commission over Zondo's remarks, other RET members believe the chief justice may have been telling the truth.
Nkosazana Dlamini-reluctance Zuma's to address major concerns voiced by fellow ANC members, they say, would have been disastrous had she been elected ANC president.
"If votes in Nasrec had not been bought, I believe Nkosazana Dlamini Zuma would have been a disaster as well. The future president of the ANC will have to be very radical and aggressive," the RET comrade added while pouring shade at Dlamini-Zuma.
