Callers debate whether ANC is on the verge of collapse

CapeTalk and 702 listeners deliberated on the current state of politics in the country and whether the ANC will survive the 2019 elections.

Listeners seem to believe that the ANC will not be in power beyond 2019 saying that the opposition seems to be giving the ruling party a tough time.

I don't think people have realised how close to collapse the ANC is.

This is my country and I am going nowhere and I think as South Africans we are very resilient.

We have Julius Malema, Mmusi Maimane and a lot of young people who are saying no more and they are penetrating the older ear.

However, Lunwabo says that even if the ANC was to lose the 2019 elections it will still have influence even beyond 2019 elections.

Even if they were to lose the elections is not like they will disappear and Jackie will wake up in a new country
