ANC and business 'together': Zuma

2010-09-22 11:49

Durban - The ANC and the business sector in South Africa were "together", with President Jacob Zuma describing the relationship as "wonderful".

"Politics and business go together. Once business steps closer to the political party in power, it means things are going very well," Zuma said after a walkabout at the business exhibition at the National General Council.

"Again the ANC is the only organisation that at its conferences can have a city (the business exhibition) like this.

"They (business and the ANC) are together, it's wonderful."

Zuma told media that he decided to tour the business exhibition in order to get a sense of how the business community felt to be part of the ANC's national general council (NGC).

Police at first refused to allow journalists into the venue.  A contingent of security then surrounded them as Zuma made his way to the exhibition centre.

Amidst much pushing and shoving, journalists were given strict instructions to "stay inside the police", a reference to the ANC muscle and police surrounding them.

The ANC is currently holding its NGC at the venue.

    Oops, was that wise given all those red dressed gents at the same venue. What will misters Vavi and Crony have to say about these statements. A time and a place for everything or has the decision been made to boot them. Afterall the commies are tiny and Cosatu will only control about 2 000 000 votes.

    I wonder if there were representatives from the mining sector, private health care and medical aid societies there?
