The ANC issued a strongly worded statement this weekend, saying it was “baseless and deliberate fabrication” that President Jacob Zuma’s foes within the organisation were being purged. The party claimed the newspaper which reported on anti-Zuma ANC members being marginalised was on “a campaign of misinformation and distortion” in an effort “to create a spectacle of disunity”. Trouble is, in two months begins the great race to get onto the ANC election list, and as high up as possible. This is what the tensions and battles raging in the provinces are all about – despite Luthuli House’s attempts to have us believe it’s all sunshine and butterflies in the ANC. By RANJENI MUNUSAMY.
