Will ANC NEC listen to Mthembu and step down?

Jackson Mthembu, ANC chief whip made a proposal over the weekend that the ANC's National Executive Committee (NEC) should step down for having failed the party's members.

Mthembu specifically mentioned the fraud charges that were laid against Minister of Finance Pravin Gordhan and raising questions of NEC's fitness to lead.

Ranjeni Munusamy, Associate Editor Daily Maverick, says there has been a conspiracy of silence within the ANC.

She says after the local government elections the NEC said they were taking collective responsibility but the commitment seems to have ended there.

Munusamy says Mthembu is not the fist person to make such a call, but as a member of the NEC his word carries more weight.

Jackson Mthembu has decided to take it upon himself to reiterate what ANC members have been saying about the NEC, says Munusamy .

For a prominent member of the NEC to call for the entire ANC NEC to step down is extremely significant.

The ANC's NEC would not take a decision to step down, says Munusamy because a lot of them are in President Zuma's corner.

She concludes that if the discontentment of the members on the ground continues boiling and puts pressure on them, we may see change.
