Sober leadership must save the ANC and South Africa

The real ANC, the soul of the congress of the people, has been hijacked and kidnapped by unruly elements in the SA Communist Party and Cosatu.

The real ANC, the soul of the congress of the people, has been hijacked and kidnapped by unruly elements in the SA Communist Party and Cosatu.

These people are riding on the wave of the disputable victory in Polokwane, which was engineered by mass corruption in ANC branches.

I call on all disgruntled elements of this great movement to immediately form another organisation to contest next year's elections.

I call on all Christians in the ANC to use their numbers and community influence to reassert the soul of the ANC.

I call on all youths who are concerned about the future of this country, unemployment and HIV-Aids to stand up because the ANC Youth League is obsessed with only one man , Jacob Zuma.

Let sober leaders such as Cyril Ramaphosa, Kader Asmal, Trevor Manuel, Joel Netshitendzhe and Nkosazana Dlamini-Zuma stand up and save us from the coming dictatorship, rot and corruption.

Leaders who see our country being turned into a "banana republic" by Luthuli House through undermining the judiciary, the Constitution and other state institutions must unite.

A strong alternative can only come through an organisation that will reassert the foundational mandate of the ANC.

The ANC is no longer a broad church, but a leftist, socialist organisation in which, if you are not an SACP or Cosatu member, you have no voice.
