Mbalula said the divisions within the ANC need to be challenged in order for the party to move forward.
“There are those who say you must be isolated. How do you isolate your president? Some of us within the organisation have attacked our president. You don’t do that. Even our worst opponents don’t do it.
“If there are comrades who feel that they can challenge the president, they are allowed, and we shouldn’t go to war about it,” said Mbalula.
