DANIEL SILKE: How the Molefe scandal exposes the inner workings of the ANC leadership
'For the ANC to demand that a minister rescind her decision to send Molefe back to Eskom is a milestone in the nascent creation of a culture of accountability in the governing party'

Firstly, let’s give praise where it is due. For the ANC to demand that a Cabinet Minister (Lynne Brown) rescind her decision to send Molefe back to Eskom is a milestone in the nascent creation of a culture of accountability in the governing party. Although we saw stirrings of this in the Communications portfolio last year, the widespread condemnation of Brown’s move reflects a new muscle in the caucus rank and file.
