Mantashe Denies ‘Amasela’ Existence, Blames Society for ANC Corruption Woes

Gwede Mantashe, the ANC’s national chairperson, has vehemently denied the existence of corrupt individuals within the party, known as “Amasela.”

Instead, he contends that corruption infiltrates the ANC from society, with individuals bringing their corrupt practices into the party to discredit its reputation.

Addressing Residents in Germiston

Speaking to residents of Tokyo Informal Settlements in Germiston, Ekurhuleni, Mantashe clarified that his visit was not part of a campaign trail but rather a community engagement.

He refuted allegations of widespread corruption within the ANC, asserting that corrupt individuals are present in society and not exclusively within the party’s ranks.

Criticism and Departures

The ANC has faced criticism for corruption scandals and failures in service delivery, leading to the departure of influential members citing dysfunction and corruption as reasons for leaving.

While certain members implicated in the State Capture report await disciplinary action, Mantashe maintains that the ANC reflects society’s character rather than shaping it.

Campaign Intensification

As the national and provincial elections approach, political heavyweights are intensifying their campaigns to attract voters.

Former president Thabo Mbeki, campaigning for the ANC, emphasized the party’s commitment to replace underperforming public representatives and fulfill its manifesto promises.

Opposition Efforts

Opposition parties are also ramping up their efforts to secure votes.

DA leader John Steenhuisen, accompanied by provincial leaders, urged voters to turn out in large numbers to rescue the province from potential disaster.

EFF heavyweights Julius Malema and Marshall Dlamini engaged in campaign activities in KZN, aiming to sway voters ahead of the elections.

ActionSA’s Encouragement

ActionSA premier candidate Zwakele Mncwango expressed encouragement by the positive reception from communities across the province, highlighting the ongoing efforts to mobilize support for the party’s agenda.
