‘Snakes’ in the ANC want to avoid a GNU to unseat Cyril Ramaphosa, claims PA leader Gayton McKenzie, who is eager to join government.

Gayton McKenzie, leader of the Patriotic Alliance (PA), claimed that “snakes” in the ANC were attempting to persuade them to leave the Government of National Unity (GNU) in order to depose President Cyril Ramaphosa.

He did, however, state that the PA supported a GNU and would not be misled by groups within the ANC.

According to McKenzie, this problem was sparked by ANC factions seeking to overthrow President Cyril Ramaphosa.

McKenzie brought it to X (previously Twitter), stating that their decision on the GNU will be based on what the ANC offered them and their preferences.

“Snakes in the ANC are working hard to persuade the PA to stay out of the GNU because they want to use us to reach their President. Our decision will be based only on the ANC’s offer to our constituency, not on your factional preferences. “We support GNU,” he remarked on X.

This comes after Ramaphosa said on Thursday that the ANC would establish a GNU to promote stability, peace, and progress in the country.

The ANC’s National Executive Committee (NEC) was locked in negotiations over the coalition government and other matters at a special meeting last week, when it was decided that a government of national unity was the best way for the party to lead the country.

Ramaphosa said the move was the greatest way to address people’s worries.

“We have also heard their frustrations and recognised their aspirations,” he added, adding that the ANC was still an important partner in the country’s search for a way forward.

“There can be no solution in our country without the ANC…. That places a responsibility on the ANC to ensure that there is unity, stability, peace and progress in South Africa,” he stated.

The ANC failed to secure a majority in the 2024 national and provincial elections. On May 29, South Africans went to the polls in an effort to elect a new administration that would address their problems.

GNU talks are still ongoing, despite the fact that parties have less than a week to achieve an agreement on a coalition to run the country for the next five years.
