ANC National Chairperson Condemns Use of Her Name in Divisive Acts
24 January 2017

The National Chairperson of the African National Congress (ANC), Comrade Baleka Mbete, is outraged by the suggestion that she is behind the production or circulation of electronic posters and other various paraphernalia with her image, lobbying for election as ANC President in 2017, that have recently surfaced on various digital platforms.

Comrade Baleka Mbete categorically denies any involvement in such mischievous tactics that seemed designed to tarnish her reputation in the eyes of ANC members and society at large. This position taken by the National Chairperson is line with the ANC's stated directive that members of the ANC, its structures and League must desist from divisive behaviour which undermine the unity and cohesion of the ANC towards the 54th National Conference and beyond.

"Such acts are clearly the work of so-called lobbyists seeking to erode unity within the organisation and divide the movement by pitting comrade against comrade," says Comrade Mbete.

The National Chairperson calls on all behind this malicious campaign to desist using her name for their opportunistic intentions.
