ANC seniors meet cadres
Several senior African National Congress (ANC) officials are today expected to descend on Zamdela, Sasolburg, in the Metsimaholo Local Municipality to address a cadres’ assembly as the ruling party raves up preparations for its crunch national conference in December.
Led by former African Union chairperson and presidential hopeful Dr Nkosazana Dlamini Zuma, the high-powered delegation that includes police minister Fikile Mbalula and state security minister David Mahlobo is billed to engage ANC cadres across the spectrum.
The assembly will be held at the Sasol Multipurpose Hall and will be open to ANC cadres across the spectrum without much emphasis on branch membership.
Chairperson of the ANC in the province Thabo Meeko yesterday (Wed) told The Weekly that the provincial leadership of the ruling party will also address the cadres on the report of the organisation’s National Working Committee (NWC).
The indaba will also discuss current political developments in the country, Meeko said.
“We will be discussing anything from the president’s cabinet reshuffle, the down grade of our economy to ‘junk status’ and its impact on ordinary South Africans,” he added.
Meeko said the meeting will also discuss the rising calls from opposition ranks that President Jacob Zuma should step down.
“It also seeks to find ways of strengthening the ANC and uniting it ahead of the national conference in December.”
