Factionalism rears its head

I fail to understand the politics of the ANC. The ruling elite in the organisation are using their ethnic values to enhance their dominance.

The struggle against apartheid united the previously separated tribes of South Africa. It took many years to unite our people under the banner of Africanism and engage them, as a united resistance force, in fighting the illegitimate system.

But it is taking Thabo Mbeki and Jacob Zuma to disunite and create ethnicity rifts between the sons and daughters of the Azanian soil.

The two politicians are dividing the country into two camps - Zulus and Xhosas. We strongly condemn such behaviour and we call on our people to shun factionalism.
