Cope's attempt to sensationalise the departure of Phumzile Mlambo-Ngcuka, Saki Macozoma, Dennis Bloem and Sello Moloto has not achieved anything .
It is common knowledge that these individuals form the core group of former president Thabo Mbeki's so-called loyalists. It therefore was expected that they would join Cope. These former ANC members are not independent thinkers and it would have shocked many people had they sworn their allegiance to the ANC.
Their joining Cope was an ill-considered, late tactical move, which will not weaken the ANC, which is the organisation of the masses. No one will stop the ANC.
