- Makhosi Khoza revealed earlier this week that she had left the Organisation Undoing Tax Abuse because the entity was 'subtly racist'
- In light of questionable ANC members opting out of serving in Parliament this term, Khoza had been impressed and hinted that she may be open to taking up a position in the party once more
- However she clarified that it would take some time for her faith to be restored in the party, with many hurdles lying ahead for the ANC
Dr Makhosi Khoza took to social media to hint that she may well be open to rejoining the ANC, but only if Ramaphosa deals 'decisively' with corruption.
This comes as members of the ruling party postponed being sworn in to Parliament yesterday, including Deputy-President David Mabuza and Minister Nomvula Mokonyane. Former Minister Malusi Gigaba withdrew his name from the ANC list completely.
This had seemingly been a glimmer of hope for Khoza, who took to Twitter to comment:
“If CR [Cyril Ramaphosa] deals decisively with corruption, ANC can at last count on us. I left the ANC cos [sic] it had become alien and corrupt. If this changes I’ll have to think hard."
Her departure from the ANC had come after a very public fallout over the party's inaction concerning corruption and her disapproval of ex-president Jacob Zuma, reports The Citizen.
Following this, she had former her own political party, the ADeC, before leaving to join OUTA. Briefly.co.za reported earlier that Khoza had claimed the civil rights organisation had prevented poor black people from joining, resigning to return to her political party.
Khoza had followed up her first comment, insisting that it was more about supporting the ANC than rejoining it:
“The ANC has to redefine its mission if it is to be relevant. At this stage, it is all about support efforts to fix RSA and rooting out corruption. We must be patient. Let’s give it six to twelve months.”
