"We are trying to get the ANC right. You can send whoever you want to send in government you're not going to get it right," Lesufi said.

"We need to get the ANC right.

"South Africans are emotionally attached to the ANC, whether they're members of the ANC or not.

We must not take their emotions for granted. Is very important that we have an ANC that can respond to their needs."
