ANC heading for turmoil - Buthelezi - Sowetan LIVE:
IFP leader Mangosuthu Buthelezi says the ANC is sitting on a "powder keg of social and political upheaval" as it heads to its conference in Mangaung and its centenary celebrations next year.
"We are sitting on a powder keg of social and political upheaval. This much is clear from the march on Thursday that split the ANC and its alliance partners, Cosatu and the SACP, on the issue of nationalisation and land expropriation. A message like that, emanating from within the ruling party's structures, is damaging to South Africa's economic prospects," he said yesterday.
"Where once the ANC seemed to be a rock that could not be moved, it is now showing cracks and fissures that could shatter it ."
