Phosa salutes Makhosi Khoza's choice to leave the ANC

The internal divisions in the African National Congress (ANC) in KwaZulu Natal and the departure of Dr Makhosi Khoza from the party have once again raised questions about the ANC's ability to self-correct.

Announcing her departure from the ANC on Thursday, Khoza said that it is too late for the ANC to self-correct. But there are members who while unhappy about the issues affecting the party at the moment, believe that the party is able to do so.

Stephen Grootes speaks to Matthews Phosa, former ANC Treasurer-General.

Phosa says the ruling party has lost its moral authority and the trust of South Africans.

Corruption of the party reflects itself in the corruption in government, it starts with the first office of President Jacob Zuma...the NEC protects him so the rot goes on. It's not a normal system.

There are a number of ministers who have performed so badly, Faith Muthambi, Bathabile in terms of the social pensions. They retain their offices notwithstanding their incompetence.

While he insists the party is on a downward spiral, the presidential hopeful says this will not discourage him.

It is going to be a miracle to save this organisation.

You don't run away when they are problems, you engage them.

Speaking on Khoza's decision to leave the ANC, Phosa says she has the freedom to disassociate herself with the party.

I respect her choice in terms of our Constitution. She has the freedom to associate or not to associate, I think we should all accept that it is her choice and not disparage her.
