Thabo Mbeki says ANC realises it has veered off course

Former President Thabo Mbeki has come out in support of the African National Congress (ANC) saying the party now realises that it has veered off course.

Speaking at the Rand Show at the Nasrec Expo Centre in the south of Johannesburg on Tuesday, Mbeki explained his now open support for the ruling party.

He says there was a time when he couldn’t tell people to vote for the ANC because of wrongdoing.

Eyewitness News reporter Nthakoana Ngatane says Mbeki also touched on issues surrounding the party's candidate list.

He believes that the ANC is now aware that it needs to go back but also the issue of the candidate list of the ANC also came up. He believes the list is still open until the integrity committee comes out with a clear way in terms of what should be done.

On former president Kgalema Motlhante's remarks that the ANC should lose elections to reflect, Mbeki says he agrees.

He says his successor is correct to say that but says at the same time the ANC is now reflecting.
