JOHANNESBURG, Nov 23 (nnn-sabc) — The South African Communist Party (SACP) has no intention of breaking away from the ruling African National Congress (ANC) and the tripartite alliance which groups the two political parties with the country’s biggest labour federation, the Congress of South African Trade Unions (COSATU), says SACP General Secetary Blade Nzimande.
The SACP’s stand against corruption and factionalism is shared by many in the ANC, Nzimande said here Sunday.
He lashed out at the media, claiming they were advocating the demise of the alliance.
“The central committee noted and expressed its strong disapproval but determination to actually deal with factionalism activity that threatens to put very stresses on our alliance,” said Nzimande.
Nzimande added that the tripartite alliance needed to be more united. “But often some of it’s about looting and some of it is about people who are positioning themselves in the organization in a manner that has got very little to do with the priorities.” — NNN-SABC
