ANC MP Makhosi Khoza made another facebook post defying the party’s authority after she was charged with two counts of ill-discipline for statements she made.r her views about the party leadership.
“I’m being persecuted because I can no longer tow [SIC] the party line. I cannot accept corruption‚ looting‚ a disregard for the people who brought us to power and the propping up of growing Kleptocracy. My ANC suffocates reason‚ morality and ethical behaviour‚” said Khoza.
“My statements in the recent past simply mirror that which millions of South Africans have been saying‚ they have had enough. To side with the ANC of today requires me to disregard my moral fibre. I am no longer willing to be an apologist for an organisation and a leader that has lost its way‚” Khoza said.
“Earlier today I received formal notification of the disciplinary charges the ANC in KwaZulu Natal has chosen to level against me. This morning‚ Comrade Ravi Pillay telephoned me to inform me that the disciplinary hearing will take place on 10 September 2017. I am consulting with my attorney on this matter‚” she lamented on Facebook.
“The ANC will need to explain why I am being singled out…The ANC will not tolerate dissenting voices and these charges are proof of that. I was raised in an ANC that spoke truth to power. I spoke truth to power in the 80s and 90s and I want to belong to an ANC that still values its founding principles‚” she added.
The former provincial ANC spokeswomen said despite not agreeing with the nature of the charges‚ she will appear before the disciplinary hearing although she is not confident that it will be a fair process.
“As a life-long and loyal member of the ANC‚ I respect the processes of the organisation and I will attend the disciplinary hearing‚ as is required. I do‚ however‚ have significant reservations as to the fairness I can expect of the process‚ considering senior leaders within the ANC have publicly called for my dismissal‚” she added.
Khoza will appear before a disciplinary hearing on September 10‚ in Durban.
