The ANC’S Western Cape interim provincial task team has referred to as nothing more than old wine in a new bottle by the South African Communist Party (SACP).
The task team’s aim is to turn the Western Cape party structures around and address persistent infighting and factionalism.
The SACP however believes that the reusing of old leaders will not do much for the organisation.
SACP leader in the province Benson Nqentsu said some of the provincial task team members’ credibility was questionable.
He continued to say that the ANC in the province would not be ready to rally the working-class communities.
“The credibility of some of these members are questionable. Bringing some of these members back will spin the Western Cape ANC deeper into crisis,” said Nqentsu.
The SACP wanted members like Lynne Brown and Maurencia Gillion removed from the committee.
Brown’s name was linked to state capture, while Gillion was suspended over a R1 million payment from businessman Iqbal Survé.
