Mthembu slams Sisulu as politically immature and disappointing

Johannesburg – ANC’s parliamentary chief whip Jackson Mthembu has turned to social media in defence of the party’s secretary general Gwede Mantashe.

According to the Daily Dispatch, ANC presidential hopeful Lindiwe Sisulu, over the weekend attacked the Mantashe’s character blaming him for divisions in the party and questioned his struggle credentials.

Her comments follow tweets from Mantashe endorsing Cyril Ramaphosa as the best candidate to replace President Jacob Zuma when he steps down in December.

He even reminded Sisulu of the existing relationship between Mantashe and Ramaphosa, explaining that he was a tried and tested leader of the congress movement.
