Minister Blade Nzimande is participating in his final South African Communist Party (SACP) congress as the party’s general secretary.

He will be bowing out from the SACP’s top leadership this year as the party’s representatives in three provinces want him to remain on.

But the six other provinces are calling for a renewal in the party’s leadership.

Politicians holding onto their leadership positions well into retirement age is a growing problem in South Africa.

While the SACP is battling to revive its leadership and remain relevant, its 15th national congress will also discuss how the party will assist workers and the poor.

Nzimande also notes that its tripartite alliance partner, the ANC is not in a good shape.  

He was speaking as a political analyst has criticised the African National Congress (ANC) for failing to fully build on plans to ensure equality in a post-apartheid South Africa.

Political analyst, Professor Bheki Mngomezulu notes that this is behind the kind of struggles facing citizens.

He contends that this being extended by the ANC members continuously reelecting dubious characters to influential positions.

Meanwhile, journalist and author, Ryland Fisher writes that South Africans should be judged by what they have contributed to the country’s democracy.
