"Twitter accounts are not ANC branches" ANC RET member tells Cyril's supporter after he said this

Comrade Nathi Sithole, who is a proponent of the Radical Economic Transformation and member of the RET forces, has told Cyril Ramaphosa's supporter that Twitter accounts are not ANC Branches. That's after Cyril Ramaphosa's supporter told Chairman Nathi Sithole that Cyril Ramaphosa won in Naserc without the support of KwaZulu-Natal, North West and Free State provinces.

Read more to find out the background of this interaction between the two:

Nathi Sithole who, has already pointed out above, is the member of the ANC RET forces, posted a tweet which seems to have prompted many of the ANC followers to react with mixed reactions. Well, Nathi Sithole proclaimed that the North West province is in the Bag, and as a result thereof, the Ankole faction is gone.

However, not everyone seemed to be sharing the same sentiments with comrade Nathi Sithole. The assertion of Nathi Sithole comes at time when the ANC North West provincial conference took place during this past weekend.

And we saw Supra Mahumapelo withdrawing from the North West ANC conference. Elsewhere, it was reported that the North West ANC provincial conference is expected to reconvene in two weeks time.

From the foregoing, Chairman Nathi Sithole stated the following on his official Twitter account:

"North West in the bag,the Ankole Faction is gone"

The remarks of Nathi Sithole made one of Cyril Ramaphosa's supporter to forthrightly remind Nathi Sithole that, in Naserc, president Cyril Ramaphosa won without the support of North West.

The said Cyril Ramaphosa's supporter in his own words said:

"Cyril won without KZN, NW & FS in Nasrec, stop fooling yourself"

The Ankole faction became known during the KwaZulu-Natal ANC provincial conference which took place some time ago. And the Ankole faction was said to be in the camp of Cyril Ramaphosa. However, the Ankole faction lost in KwaZulu-Natal. As result thereof, a new leadership was elected in KwaZulu-Natal.
