Ace Magashule, Secretary-general for the African National Congress, has given a stern overview of the leaders in his party, saying it is time for them to be humble and stop obsessing over their positions.
Delivering the annual Pixley ka Isaka Seme lecture in Inanda last night, Magashule gave his assessment of the issues facing ANC leadership.
“We like positions, we like status, we don’t like services, we don’t serve people. We’re not selfless, we’re not dedicated, we’re not committed, we want positions. During this 107 years, we must just humble ourselves.”
The Secretary-general gives his assessment of the situation as the ANC continues its campaign in the KwaZulu-Natal province, ahead of the upcoming elections.

Local Shanta Maharaj-Singh has expressed her concern over her children's lack of belief in the party, even though she was a loyal member, saying:
“My concern is how do we keep them [the ANC] here [KwaZulu-Natal] because there are a lot of young people who have faith on this country, but they are putting their money into other political parties. That’s my cause of concern.”
