RET Cdes To Split From ANC? Tito Mboweni Says It's Not New

As the ANC's election conventions have become increasingly focused on factionalism, former Finance Minister Tito Mboweni has spoken out.

As Tito Mboweni points out, factionalism in the ANC is not a recent phenomena. Since the beginning of time, it has been an integral aspect of the political process.

"Factionalism and demagogy have afflicted politics for as long as it has existed. Why do you think Brutus, Casca, and Cassius plotted to assassinate Julius Caesar? Dingaan and his brother killed uShaka for an unclear reason. As a result of the animal's inherent predisposition to engage in such behavior "On the heels of what he said earlier, Mboweni went into more detail.

Tito Mboweni tweeted the following:

According to a rumor earlier this week, Mboweni and the Radical Economic Transformation (RET) would create a breakaway faction of the African National Congress (ANC). After the information was made public, Mboweni's comments were made.

If this is true, it would imply that another faction of the ruling African National Congress would break away, following in the footsteps of a party called Congress of the People, which is reported to have been created as an offshoot of the ANC by some of its most senior members.

The comrade from RET believes that the separation from the ANC will ensure that the policies of their organization serve the majority of black people.

"I believe the RET will win the next ANC split. It won't be long before those who haven't benefited from the system since 1994 have a strong leader they can put their faith in. The only way our democratic system can work for everyone's benefit is through the use of RET "That was the gist of their argument.

The apparent attempt by the RET to secede from the ANC by President Cyril Ramaphosa's group appears to worry no one associated with that faction.

The RET members should form their own group or join an existing one rather than remain part of the party, according to these people.

"It would be great if criminals and RET members left to establish their own party or join ATM supporters. After that, it will be able to properly clean itself. South Africa's economy is expected to prosper without the ANC's corrupt RET members "According to supporters of Cyril Ramaphosa, the incoming president.
