David Makhura, the outgoing African National Congress provincial chair for Gauteng, claims that some ANC officials and leaders' "greed and survival of the fittest" are to blame for the party's continued decline in support in the province.
He claims that internal conflict within the party needs to end because it breeds factionalism and creates more divisions than it does unity. At the 14th ANC Gauteng Provincial Conference, which was taking place in Benoni, east of Johannesburg, he was giving his final report. According to him, the main priority right now should be to make sure that the ANC resonates with some people on the ground and in the branches.
We need to rid the ANC of the survival of the fittest, greed, and rand seeking. We have demons ba roti re rapelle, and we must get rid of them because they continue to kill our movement. This demon, the demon of greed and survival of the fittest, inspired the demon of factionalism.
