Nzimande lashes out at DA, media and 'the rich'
The Democratic Alliance (DA) is a party of whites, South African Communist Party (SACP) general secretary Blade Nzimande said on Saturday.
"The DA is a party of white madams and baases [white bosses]," he told the KwaZulu-Natal ANC nomination conference in Durban.
Nzimande lashed out at those who said there was no leadership in the country.
"Those who say there is no leadership in South Africa, they speak for the rich.
"I did not know that electricity could be connected to a mud structure. It is the leadership of the ANC that brought that," he said.
Nzimande said the African National Congress was the only organisation that could build South Africa as a non-racial, non-sexist and democratic society.
He urged the delegates who would represent the province at the party's national elective conference in Mangaung to choose wisely, when deciding who should lead the ANC.
"Go and defend the majority rule. You can't have people losing the elections and wanting to rule from the courts and from the graves."
Nzimande also hit out at the media, saying it was not objective in its reporting.
He said the party should close ranks and defend the majority rule, especially from attacks on President Jacob Zuma.
"We [SA Communist Party] are not going to decide for the ANC who
the ANC must elect. But khethani kahle maqabane [choose properly comrades]."
Nomination would take place on Sunday. – Sapa.
