The economy of South Africa is run by minorities, claims African National Congress (ANC) presidential Hopeful Nkosazana Dlamini-Zuma while addressing the ANC cadre Assembly Thursday in the Free State.
Dlamini-Zuma added ANC will ensure the trend to change as majority is not a part of the mainstream economy.
She was addressing to the supporters who marched last week against President Jacon Zuma and voice against the agenda of current government for radical economic transformation.
The national and provincial leaders of ANC met with other members of the party to explain current political development in South Africa.
She said, “That has to change… it’s not sustainable. We can’t sustain a situation where the majority of the people are not participating in the economy.”
The leader continued that all need to be done to increase the participation of black people in the country’s economy and want to do what is right.
Recently President Zuma reshuffled the cabinet and public disagreements were seen among the top six leaders of the governing party.
ANC Deputy President Cyril Ramaphosa, Secretary General Gwede Mantashe and Treasurer General Zweli Mkhize expressed they were not happy with the reshuffle and also the axing of Pravin Gordhan as finance minister.
Dlamini-Zuma said, “Even if you don’t understand the issues before you understand them you can’t attack a comrade.”
Leaders need to first sit and resolve issues as if one thinks there are mistakes, there will be mistakes, said Dlamini-Zuma.
ANC supporters were also urged not to support such programs which are organized by opposition parties.
