SOUTH African voters need to know the truth.
The ANC and Cope do not make us proudly South African and we don't want to be associated with them .
My sincere advice to Cope members who are thinking of returning to the ANC is: just stay where you are and solve your problems internally. Going back to the ANC will be political suicide.
In Cope Mbhazima Shilowa and Terror Lekota are fighting for the presidency and in the ANC, Julius Malema, Floyd Shivambu and Thandi Modise are running the organisation like a spaza shop.
Though ANC leaders and supporters deny it, Malema is running the ANC because the top six want to ensure that their positions are not threatened by him and his ANCYL
Cosatu is right to threaten to leave the tripartite alliance if its general secretary, Zwelinzima Vavi, is charged for raising critical issues. These issues should in fact have been raised by the ANC leadership .
If Cosatu breaks away from the ANC and the ANCYL finds a way to remove Jacob Zuma as president of the party, I foresee disaster for the ANC in the 2014 elections.
The majority of ANC voters in the last election were swept away by Msholozi's charm. In Malema's camp no one is appealing to the electorate because they are all Malema sympathisers rather than sympathisers of the poor electorate.
Hellen Zille and her DA will one day earn the masses respect if Cope and the ANC continue their infighting.
