'Those who think NEC will recall President are living in a dream world' - Vavi

Zwelenzima Vavi reiterates his view that people inside and outside of Cabinet and in the ANC have known for years what the Gupta family have been doing.

This family, the Guptas, was throwing their weight around, inviting people into their compound in Saxonwold to offer them positions long before Mbalula came out in public.

Anyone in the ANC and the Alliance who is saying this is a phenomenon of 2016 is lying.

Vavi salutes all those who have finally gone public with the Gupta job offers and says he hopes more will follow.

Vavi believes that like in 2008, no action against the President will be taken. He says the National Executive Council has been reconstructed and juniorised.

Almost every member of that NEC is an employee of Jacob Zuma in Cabinet or in another important state institution. None of them will have the guts to stand up against their employer.

He says the sidelining of the old ANC stalwarts and replacing them with junior members means no one will speak out.

The people who know the ANC inside and out, who took all the blows that the apartheid system could throw in their direction are too few in the NEC.

Vavi says the new cadres in the NEC have too many of their own skeletons that would be exposed if they spoke out.

Those who think the NEC can ever, ever recall the President are living in a dream world. They have not understood the reconstruction of the ANC since 2007.
