Thabo Mbeki Is The Real Hypocrite After Saying This


Former African National Congress (ANC) president Thabo Mbeki claims that proponents of moving South Africa away from being a constitutional democracy lack context in their arguments. Mbeki said he had wide-ranging conversations with the ANC Youth League's national task force over the weekend over whether the country should be a constitutional or parliamentary democracy.

His views, which he expressed with youthful members of the ruling party, echo those of national executive committee member Lindiwe Sisulu and KwaZulu-Natal Chairperson Sihle Zikalala, both of whom have questioned the country's Constitution and its role in change. Those who wish to understand why South Africa is a constitutional democracy should look at the ANC's ready to rule policy statement, which focused on democracy and being in power when the party was formed. At least, this is Mbeki's point of view.

He informed youth league leaders that the history of this choice must always be considered while discussing the country's democracy. "Even elected structures in Parliament must be guided by principles that must be central to South Africa's development." Mbeki also questioned the impact on the country's democracy of a reduction in the caliber of ANC members. The ANC's commitment to renewal has been reaffirmed by the league.
