“we are not a party of free agents” ANC Mantashe

ANC Secretary General Gwede Mantashe speaking at a media briefing on the outcomes of a 3-day National Executive Committee (NEC) lekgotla when he issued a warning to ANC Members of Parliament (MP) that they may be relieved of their duties in the party if they vote in favour of a motion of no confidence against President Jacob Zuma.

“One of my comrades asked me over the weekend ‘what happens now if I don’t like a particular form of voting?

“I said ‘you are free to take a walk, because we are not a party of free agents’. If we are a party of free agents then we have no party, we may as well dissolve it. We are members of the ANC, we execute the mandate of the ANC, there’s no two ways about it,” ANC Secretary General Gwede Mantashe said.
