The ANC is "dreaming" if it thinks it can win 50% of the vote in the next general election if it continues on the trajectory involving the Guptas, South African Communist Party (SACP) deputy general secretary Jeremy Cronin warned on Wednesday. Cronin made the remark during an address to the Cape Town Press Club, where he also called on the government to cut all ties with the Guptas immediately, even if only for narrow electoral reasons. He emphasised that President Jacob Zuma must step down if any progress was to be made in ending state capture. Cronin addressed the club on how SA had reached the conjuncture in which the state had been captured. This was shortly after delegates at the ANC policy conference locked horns over the malaise that has contributed to declining levels of support for the party.
