ANC stalwart hopeful ANC can self correct to avoid a breakaway

The South African Communist Party (SACP) is holding it's national congress in Boksburg where it's looking at how to approach a possible split in the Africa National Congress (ANC) after December.

Stalwart Mvuso Msimang hopes the crisis within the ANC can still be fixed, to avoid a split.

Earlier this month, stalwarts of the ruling party refused to participate in a consultative process scheduled for the first leg of the party's policy conference, because their requirements had not been met.

Our next plan now is to still hold the consultative conference, one would hope with the current leadership and discuss how best to resolve a serious crisis facing the ANC.

Mvuso says a December conference cannot be had without discussing issues contributing to the party's downfall.

You need to discuss issues like what are we to do about continuing with a President who is no longer supposed to be in charge as a state President.

We have got the Gupta leaks, I do not know if that was discussed or came forward as a resolution and yet this is what is causing problems for the ANC.
