Thabo Mbeki and his brutally honest address at the ANC Provincial Executive Committee meeting in the Eastern Cape has prompted much public opinion and debate.
Former President of the ANC, Thabo Mbeki was in the Eastern Cape on Monday, 31 May 2021, for the extended Provincial Executive Committee (PEC) meeting. Mbeki addressed those in attendance on past ANC leadership structures that have, in essence, affected the ANC and South Africa negatively in the present day.
His address was met with vast mixed reactions from the public, particularly in terms of his opinions on former president, Jacob Zuma’s leadership and Ace Magashule’s ongoing controversy with the ANC. He was very direct in stating that the appointment of Ace Magashule as the Premier of the Free State back in 2007 was a mistake, one that the ANC made which changed the structure of appointments from 1997.
It is clear from his address that he was subliminally stating that there were doubts about Ace Magashule being appointed as the premier since as far back as 1997.
See the post below.
Mbeki is weighing in on why he never selected Ace Magashule as a Premier. He is subliminally saying Ace was never a Premier material but he had a window of opportunity when Polokwane changed the Mafikeng resolution. pic.twitter.com/CCetMt8reO
