- Blade Nzimande says the African National Congress must fight back against the fightback against it
- According to Nzimande, there are factional ‘parasitic networks’ in the ANC that wants to weaken it
- Nzimande feels that these elements were also at the core of state capture
The South African Communist Party General Secretary, Blade Nzimande has called on the ANC to stand up and fight back against the 'corrupt' fightback that it faces.
According to Nzimande, there are factional ‘parasitic networks’ within the ruling party that want to weaken it from the inside.
He says this is so they can keep getting away with corruption, according to a report by The Citizen.
There is now emerging a bold, if not reckless, fight against attempts at renewal and forging unity in our movement, including attempts to defeat state capture.
Nzimande says this fightback is coming from the same people who were at the centre of state capture.
Briefly.co.za gathered that Nzimande added that it is vital to support President Ramaphosa as he takes on corruption.
That is why it is important to welcome and support the initiatives led by President [Cyril] Ramaphosa to clean state-owned enterprises and other state organs like SARS as part of defending the gains of the first phase of our democratic revolution – thus laying a basis to drive its second more radical phase.
Part of fighting the fightback is to expose the creation and role of rogue intelligence activities associated with the state capture agenda.
