ANC cannot aim for power at all costs, says David Makhura
Gauteng Premier David Makhura is preparing for the possibility of the ANC losing the province in 2019. Makhura on Thursday warned about the dangers of wanting to remain in government at all costs. "If we are preoccupied with remaining in government we can do wrong things." He said if the ANC-run provincial government continued to do good work it would not matter whether the party was re-elected. "Whether we get elected in 2019, at least we can say we did a good job. "I don’t mind sitting in the opposition benches. We would have left something for the people of Gauteng." The ANC lost two of Gauteng’s metros, Johannesburg and Tshwane, to the DA in this year’s local government elections.
