Deputy president Cyril Ramaphosa says its also concerning that organisations such as the Ahmed Kathrada Foundation have distanced themselves from the ANC.
JOHANNESBURG – Deputy president Cyril Ramaphosa says that while anger towards the African National Congress (ANC) is justified, the party now needs disgruntled members to return and help restore the party.
Ramaphosa was speaking at the launch of the Ahmed Kathrada tribute programme at the weekend in the North West.
Cosatu and the South African Communist Party (SACP) have both come out strongly against the ANC, issuing warnings for the future of the once-strong alliance.
Deputy president Cyril Ramaphosa says it’s also concerning that organisations such as the Ahmed Kathrada Foundation have distanced themselves from the ANC.
He says the party needs a united front if it is to be cleansed.
“And we should not run away from these problems and go and set up some other entities outside. Let us stay within the African National Congress.”
Ramaphosa also warns that state capture and corruption can only be dealt with if the party is united within the alliance.
