Zweli Mkhize: The ANC is not a stokvel

The African National Congress (ANC) is not about individual interests, KwaZulu-Natal chairperson Zweli Mkhize said in Durban on Saturday.

“There are people who believe the ANC is an investment coalition, they believe they should receive dividends for their contribution,” Mkhize said.

“The ANC is not a stokvel, the ANC is not here to serve any individual.”

ANC delegates in the eThekwini region, the biggest in KwaZulu-Natal, gathered at the Olive Convention Centre to elect new leaders.

Mkhize said those who believed the ANC owed them something were in the wrong party.

“No one is more important than the ANC,” he said.

The elections are hotly contested by provincial health minister Dr Sibongiseni Dhlomo and former provincial ANC Youth League leader Nhlakanipho Ntombela, who are both fighting for the chairmanship position.

“ANC must make sure it lives by the creed of democracy, different opinions are not a basis for factionalism,” Mkhize said.

He said cliques and factionalism would not be tolerated.

“It is unity of the leadership that will save South Africa, it is not the division from those who want to create space for protection when they are doing wrong.”

He encouraged delegates to vote for humble leaders who would subject themselves to serving the community. — Sapa
