JOHANNESBURG, SOUTH AFRICA – Frustrated citizens across South Africa are sending a clear message to the African National Congress (ANC): if they wish to secure their votes in the upcoming 2024 elections, they must reverse their decision to dismiss the public protector, Advocate Busisiwe Mkhwebane. Public sentiment is resolute, and this ultimatum serves as a stern warning that the ruling party cannot afford to disregard.
In the previous elections, the ANC faced significant challenges, managing to secure just under 68% of the total vote. However, the political landscape has shifted dramatically, and the ruling party now finds itself under scrutiny from citizens who were once staunch supporters. The erosion of confidence in the ANC can be attributed to a slew of issues, including frequent power outages (load shedding) and the rampant corruption that has plagued the country. Surprisingly, many citizens have yet to explore alternative political options that could potentially bring about much-needed change.
Compounding the ANC’s woes is internal division. The deepening divide between those loyal to President Cyril Ramaphosa and those aligned with the Zuma family threatens to further undermine the party’s performance. This internal strife may prove more detrimental than advantageous for the African National Congress.
BREAKING NEWS: South Africans are saying “If the ANC still wants our votes for 2024. They will make sure Advocate Busisiwe Mkhwebane is not nonsensically impeached. No need for politics. Your fate is in your hands” It’s a warning the ruling party cannot afford to ignore. pic.twitter.com/sUNDDi65vD

Across social media platforms, individuals are expressing their concerns about these developments. Some are demanding a tougher stance on immigration, calling for the deportation of all foreigners, regardless of their legal status. Others are critical of the party’s leadership choices, singling out figures like Fikile Mbalula and Dyantyi as drivers of destruction for the ANC.
The future of the ANC now hangs in the balance, as South African citizens demand accountability and change from the ruling party. The question that remains is how the ANC will respond and whether their actions will suffice to restore faith in their leadership ahead of the crucial 2024 elections.
