Former South African president Thabo Mbeki has questioned whether an organisation called the ANC still exists, echoeing concerns of members in leaked voice notes from the ongoing virtual ANC national executive committee meeting. In the recording, Mbeki and NEC member Dakota Legoete are heard questioning the step-aside rule. Legoete argues that certain ANC members, who are more deeply implicated in corruption than secretary-general Ace Magashule, are not facing sanction. Mbeki also reflects on a warning by the party’s Women’s League about the ANC’s possible demise.
