Opinion : Sisulu will likely have to explain opinion piece to ANC

should explain how it is acceptable language to call esteemed black members of the judiciary 'house negroes', how the Constitution stops ministers including herself from executing their duties and why she's failed to come up with useful proposals to amend it. Made to explain doesn't equal to being suppressed. Will likely have to explain opinion piece to ANC - Besani

Why? ANC can't be used to suppress debate, those who hold a different view are free to express their views!!

Money to fight for this position; he has politicians that he made become senators, governors, ministers et al.

Do you think these folk will not back him as their godfather?

He has most of the southern politicians in his Sokoto.

He only needs a few supports here alongside


These are the response of some Twitter users named, Lindokkuhle Matt Nkambule, he listed some of the organization who attacked her.

This is a list of organisations that are attacking Lindiwe Sisulu:

1.Ahmed Kathrada Foundation


3.Corruption Watch

4.Defend our Democracy Campaign

5.Freedom Under Law 

6.Helen Suzman Foundation

7.Judges Matter 

8. DA

All these are anti-black organisations.

The African National Congress (ANC)'s head of presidency Sibongile Besani said that while the party had no issues with dissenting views, it was likely that Tourism Minister Lindiwe Sisulu would be asked to explain her opinion piece trashing black judges and the Constitution.

Besani said that it made no sense to claim that the Constitution had serious shortcomings when it had not been stretched to its fullest capacity.  

Political experts have described Tourism Minister Lindiwe Sisulu’s opinion piece which attacks those in power and the judiciary’s role in the country’s democracy as a “big mistake”.

While experts said the opinion piece published last week in IOL was certainly a launching pad for Sisulu’s second attempt at the race for the African National Congress’s presidency ahead of the party’s elective conference this year, they added that her views may work against that ambition too.
