Political pundits some party faithful have said they are fed up with his seeming double standard. ANC Secretary General Gwede Mantashe said four party members have admitted that the Gupta emails are the real thing.

“Some believe Zuma going would solve all problems. It’s a myth.

Zuma himself might get the message that it’s time to go”

We must go to the conference and elect leadership that says no aloota-continua, (SIC) no to ┬áthe looting continuing” Mantashe said.

It’s time for the president to listen to his own people who elected him as president.

He said it’s not doing the movement any good if negative issues are raised and nothing is done about it.

Mantashe said he’s pleased that comrades have owned up.

Mantashe’s speech sounded like a political education session; hard hitting and anchored in history, he urged delegates to avoid the temptation to take short cuts to fix the ANC’s problems.

Some of the Secretary General’s words may have been difficult to stomach for the ANC in Gauteng, which last year called on President Jacob Zuma to do the right thing and step down.
