Makhosi Khoza, the spoilt child of ANC has finally parted ways with ANC. “Goodbye alien and corrupt ANC, I quit!” she quoted saying at a press briefing on Thursday at Lilliesleaf, Johannesburg.
Its also heard here that whilst Makhosi left the party calling them as ‘Corrupt” and Incapable of Self Correction”, she herself was facing the heat for her Indiscipline acts towards the Party since long and this could well be termed as her “Separation in Desperation”.
It’s also worth mentioning here that she was already in differences with some members of ANC, following her remarks defaming the current party leadership as well as calling for President Jacob Zuma to step down. She has been further charged with Disciplinary actions by the ANC KwaZulu-Natal Provincial executive; charges including “making an utterance which brings or could bring ANC into disrepute”. However, ahead of a scheduled disciplinary hearing at the weekend, after Pietermaritzburg High Court declared the provincial ANC 2015 elective conference as unlawful and void, Khoza wrote a letter to the disciplinary committee, ANC Secretary General Gwede Mantashe and Chief Whip, Jackson Mthembu conveying them that she would not subject herself to disciplinary processes initiated by an illegitimate Provincial Executive.
“It pains me when I walk in parliament and some members mock me for following my moral compass. They call me ill-disciplined, charge me for disrepute, but I will not die down. I was bombarded with calls and SMS’ that the ANC can self-correct, but the new alien ANC’s corrupt and selfish, where senseless leaders are not capable of self-correcting. During the last few months of persecution I had to decide what is next for my future and I do not believe that the new ANC is pro-women, instead its leaders have used and abused women” She said in a statement.
Though Khoza, who now ceases to be a member of parliament after her resignation, still intends to work alongside a number of civil society organizations including Corruption Watch and Save South Africa but it would be really interesting to see how well she would suffice in her new role along with her “Ill-Disciplined” and “Outspoken” attitude.
