Anonymous Letter Claims ANC Expelling Zuma

An anonymous letter, composed (purportedly) by 10 ANC members from KwaZulu-Natal, claims that there are plans to force former president Jacob Zuma out of the ANC. The letter was sent via email only and quickly reached its target recipient, the ANC. The letter demands that the African National Congress holds a national general council to give members the opportunity to speak out about former president Zuma. A national general council can only be convened by the national office, and not by provincial offices.  The letter failed basic tests of verification, and when Independent Media attempted to clarify certain points the authors could not be reached on the same email.

“We have concrete evidence of the existence of a grouping of leaders that has been secretly approaching activists in the province for the purposes of using them to profile and promote Cyril Ramaphosa in KwaZulu Natal while discrediting all those perceived to be supporters of President Zuma. What is most disturbing and outrageous in all of this, is their plan to have President Zuma expelled from the ANC,” the letter claims. The letter gave the names of the five senior ANC members in KZN who are known supporters of Ramaphosa and claims that they are moving to have Zuma step aside.

“Yes we have received it (the letter). We are still going to process it firstly by ascertaining the individual who wrote it as it has no contact details other than email address and the other 10 signatories. Secondly, we can confirm that the alleged individuals in the letter dispute the contents and the alleged plot they are said to be engaged on. Worse they have never met as that grouping of individuals for a very long time,” Nhlakanipho Ntombela, provincial spokesperson, said.
