Afternoon Drive host, Joanne Joseph has some stern words for the North West premier.

Resignation? What resignation? Today, Mahumapelo said there was a change of plan. He [Supra Mahumapelo] hasn’t actually resigned. He’s been sitting in an ANC Provincial Elective Council Meeting for the last few hours, chairing a meeting that’ll decide his own fate.

Joanne Joseph, Afternoon Drive host

Joanne questioned how it's possible that a deployee of the ANC who’s accused of maladministration and corruption gets to decide whether he’ll stay in his position or not, after people have descended on the streets of the North West, saying they no longer want him there because he hasn’t delivered?

The ANC issued a statement on Tuesday night praising him for his resignation, but Mahumapelo now says there's been a change of plan.

The ANC is a party that prizes obedience in its deployees, and expects it from them. But there’s a bad habit that’s developed in its ranks during the Zuma administration. There are those who believe that once you’ve made it into a senior position in the party, you just bed down and make yourself comfortable because whether you deliver or not, the job is yours for as long as you want it, even when the top echelons are telling you, your services are no longer required.

Joanne Joseph, Afternoon Drive host

We’re glad you enjoyed it while it lasted, but you’re the premier, not the king. After seeing John Steenhuisen getting a tongue lashing in Parliament from the President yesterday, I wouldn’t test Cyril Ramaphosa’s patience if I were you! He may have much harsher words for you, than shut up!
