South Africa's new celebration chief targets 'billions' in graft

The ANC "has become deeply divided through factionalism, patronage, corruption and competition for resources", he said.

Thousands of ANC supporters booed Zuma as he made his way to the stage as images of him appeared on big screens around the stadium.

Speaking to News24 shortly after the January 8 statement by ANC president Cyril Ramaphosa, Maine accused some within the party of orchestrating the heckling.

While the president was being booed, Kenyan President Uhuru Kenyatta, also at the meeting, was received with welcoming cheers.

Guided by the National Development Plan, Ramaphosa said they aim to restore focus on building an economy in which all South Africans can flourish, an economy that benefits the people as a whole, rather than a privileged few.

The ANC has been in power since the country's first democratic elections in 1994, but voters have grown disillusioned with the party of Nelson Mandela under Zuma's tenure.

Some within the newly-elected national executive committee who were seated at the podium, laughed shyly at his joke while others simply smirked. January 8 marks the day the ANC was formed. Addressing the crowd, he said, the time for free higher education has "arrived", for students from poor and working class backgrounds, whose household income was less than R350,000.

"Yet‚ despite all of Zuma's indiscretions‚ Ramaphosa has failed to recall him showing that the ANC will not self-correct and that we can only expect more of the same‚" Van Damme asserted.

NEC member Derek Hanekom condemned boos directed at Zuma as highly inappropriate. "This matter can not wait any longer", he said.
