"The ANC's issues with Khoza and Hanekom are a symptom of a bigger problem"

The African National Congress (ANC) seems wracked with divisions. This has been heightened following the Zuma vote of no confidence.

It appears now that ruling party Members of Parliament who are believed to have supported the secret ballot and who have called out corruption, are being targeted.

The vocal Makhosi Khoza was fired last week as chair of a parliamentary portfolio committee, and it seems that the chair of the ANC national disciplinary committee Derek Hanekom is next. He has been given 10 days to explain why he should not be removed from his position.

It seems every time the leadership of the party seems to justify certain decisions they can't do it without seemingly contradicting statements they said before. This points to the bigger issue.

Host Gugz Mhlungu says that these decisions and actions, particularly around the President, continue to contradict previous statements made by the ANC.

These are distraction tactics that are hiding a bigger problem within the organisation, she adds.

During an open line, listeners shared their thoughts on the actions of the ANC.

It's very clear that the majority of the leadership, unlike maybe the grassroots level, are a corrupt organisation.
