Former Cosatu general secretary, Zwelinzima Vavi says the violent unrest in Tshwane is a symptom of the ANC’s internal squabbles seen across the country.
Vavi says that the ruling party is at war with itself, fighting for leadership positions, power and instant wealth.
It's so that the people can boost themselves closer to the feeding trough.— Zwelinzima Vavi, former Cosatu general secretary
According to Vavi, there are party members who call each other comrades, yet plot to kill each other.
The ANC has become a place for patronage networks, building loyalty... and those who support the leadership irrespective of the mistakes that they commit. It's the tragedy of a fallen movement.— Zwelinzima Vavi, former Cosatu general secretary
He says that he fears the thought of what South Africa could become if citizens do not speak out against and voice their dissatisfaction with the party.
