Mmamoloko Kubayi, a member of the African National Congress (ANC) National Executive Committee (NEC), has come out to say that the party’s president, Cyril Ramaphosa has been discussing service delivery challenges with ANC members in eThekwini, Durban, in preparation for next year’s general election. The engagement is aimed at evaluating the performance of the party’s structures and identifying areas that require attention. The focus is not only on internal matters of the ANC, but also on addressing problems and getting feedback from branches interacting with communities.
During his engagement with party members, President Ramaphosa emphasized the importance of addressing bread and butter issues, including service delivery, at the local level. He dismissed reports that the party’s national leadership intends to disband the leadership of KwaZulu-Natal, a province where the ANC lost ground in some areas, including some municipalities, during the 2021 municipal elections and subsequent by-elections.
For now, the ANC National Working Committee members will remain in KwaZulu-Natal until Tuesday to evaluate the party’s readiness for next year’s general elections. Other members of the party’s National Executive Committee, such as the deputy president and secretary-general, have also been deployed to various regions.
Meanwhile, some people have expressed concerns that President Ramaphosa is only engaging ANC members, rather than the whole country, and that party members are involved in corrupt activities, which contributes to the lack of service delivery. According to some social media users the ANC’s days are numbered. Check out some of the comments made in reaction to this report;
