Citing The Star, IOL reported that it was “reliably learnt that Eastern Cape ANC provincial executive committee member Pumelele Ndamase led the charge in criticizing Zuma for his links to the Guptas, saying his relationship to the Indian business family had tarnished the party’s image.”
While it was related that the alliance leaders denied that Mr president was heavily criticized for his links with the Guptas, and dismissed the claims as nonsense, Oscar Mabuyane, a provincial secretary of the ruling party admitted that the Guptas was extensively discussed at the summit.
Commenting, Mabuyane said – “let’s not create enemies where there are none. It’s a figment of somebody’s imagination that the president was criticized. It’s absolute nonsense and rubbish.”
According to Mabuyane, “delegates were free to engage and ask any questions on any matters…Issues of clarity were asked about the Guptas, the discussion was led by Zuma and it was enriching. There was no dressing down of Zuma. We had a good internal discussion about issues affecting the alliance and the country,” he added.
Meanwhile, the National Assembly Speaker, Baleka Mbete in another report, warned that there will be a state of utter confusion or disorder if President Zuma is removed as the leader of the country.
