Collen Maine, ANC Youth League President, has called out the party leaders who criticise President Ramaphosa's decision to appoint Pravin Gordhan as a minister. According to Maine, these leaders are ill-disciplined.
Outgoing ANC Youth League leader, Collen Maine, has voiced his opinion on the party's leadership who criticised President Ramaphosa's decision to appoint Pravin Gordhan as Public Enterprise Minister.
Maine said these leaders are ill-disciplined, according to a report eNCA.
This comes after Mzwandile Masina, Ekurhuleni mayor, condemned Ramaphosa's appointment of Gordhan, as reported on earlier by Briefly.co.za.
This came after the Public Protector ruled that Gordhan had violated the Constitution by granting an early retirement payout to former SARS deputy, Ivan Pillay.
Masina claims that Gordhan's appointment "undermines the rule of law".
“We would request that issues of the organisation, must be exhausted internally, you see anarchy and ill-discipline manifest itself in many ways."
He added that there is no suppression of the views of ANC members, but they should discuss it within the party before going public with how they feel.
"We’re not suppressing the views of comrades but we suggest and want to appeal to them to raise their views within the organisation before they could take to platforms like social media and all of that."
