I'm gobsmacked the ANC is commending Kodwa and Mabe for stepping down - Eusebius
The African National Congress (ANC) has suffered a spate of scandals over the past few months including two of its senior members being accused of sexual misconduct.
According to the party's secretary-general Ace Magashule, head of Presidency Zizi Kodwa and spokesperson Pule Mabe have decided to step down as the ANC's spokespersons.
The decision came after Kodwa was accused of rape and Mabe's accuser laid a criminal charge against him.
Show presenter Eusebius McKaiser says the ANC needs to learn the fundamentals of leadership.
The part of the story that had me gobsmacked was the statement from the ANC that said Kodwa and Mabe need to be commended for showing leadership for stepping down.Eusebius McKaiser, presenter
If you set your sights low enough, you will never be disappointed when it comes to leadership. Here you are at the two men, two leaders who have been accused of some of the most serious crimes that are rampant in our society, they decide to step aside, so that their names from their perspective be cleared.Eusebius McKaiser, presenter
And what does the ANC do? They decide to give these guys a round of applause and say that this is the gold standard of leadership.Eusebius McKaiser, presenter
No wonder we are in the state that we are in and you have things like the Zondo Commission unfolding because the ANC's idea of leadership excellence is one that is so ridiculously poorly thought through that someone accused of rape decides to step aside and then the ANC wants to give them a noddy badge.Eusebius McKaiser, presenter
