There is renewed debate on whether the ANC is still guided by the Freedom Charter.
Economic Freedom Fighters leader Julius Malema says Jacob Zuma should be the one hauled before a disciplinary committee, not his party for demanding that the president pay back the money for upgrades to his Nkandla home.
Julius Malema said he was out to prove that “it is not cold outside the ANC” and that there is life outside the governing party, which expelled him before he formed the Economic Freedom Fighters.
President Jacob Zuma bears no responsibility for overspending at his Nkandla home, ANC MPs said today as they continued Parliament’s consideration of the matter.
A teacher from the National School of the Arts who was at the centre of a racism scandal has been found not guilty.
The ANC in Gauteng does not operate outside the guidelines set down by the mother body, provincial leaders said.
The ANC will not discuss a change in leadership at its national general council next year.
One would think that your career would be over if you were a prophet who failed to predict the death of scores of people in a building you own.
ANC policy head Jeff Radebe says that the ANC will step up its act ahead of the 2016 local government elections because it is worried that fewer people are voting for it.
Parliament was again heated this week as ANC MP Mathole Motshekga parroted his boss by insisting that Thuli Madonsela’s report was not any more special than other reports, and that she was not a judge.
An agenda to discredit the ANC and its president Jacob Zuma is behind recent critical media reports, the political party has said.
EFF leader Julius Malema says Camp Zuma is sacrificing the Constitution on the altar of political convenience.
The Economic Freedom Fighters was unconcerned by a report that about 100 of its Northern Cape members had defected back to the ANC.
The ANC says President Jacob Zuma could not be held liable for misspending on his Nkandla home, nor made to refund the money, prompting the opposition to threaten to withdraw from the parliamentary committee looking into the controversy.
The Democratic Alliance says it will continue its battle to get rid of parliamentary speaker Baleka Mbete.

Tuesday. I’m hanging in a huge tent. I’m waiting for the Commander in Chief. It’s been a long, sweaty wait.
When South Africans wanted details of President Jacob Zuma’s mysterious “rest and relaxation” visit to Russia last month, the response from the highest office was dismissive.
