According to the Minister of Higher Education and Training, Blade Nzimande who also happens to be the South African Communist Party (SACP) General Secretary. said that he is ready to lose his ministerial position if it means he cant be allowed to voice out his concerns.
He said while addressing the Young Communist League (YCL) at the weekend during its national council in Soweto.
“If comrades will that I no longer deserve to be minister of higher education and training, this is not a job for me, I’m safe with my country. They must go to the relevant people who must make the relevant decisions, don’t destroy our universities.”
“No one is going to shut me up just because I’m scared of losing my cabinet post.”
He also added that the fact that the revolution is being hijacked is evident in the amount of factionalism in the ANC.
“Look at what’s been happening, for instance, that in each conference of the ANC there are two groups that will contest each other, in a very clumsy way of handling things and sometimes in a brutal way of handling things which results in splinter groups that form their own organisation.”
