SACP Eastern Cape secretary Xolile Nqatha has called for unity between the ANC and its alliance partners, warning that continued squabbles could eventually strip the ruling party of its power.
Nqatha was speaking at the Raymond Mhlaba Sports Centre in Motherwell, Port Elizabeth, where about 400 people gathered to commemorate the lives of Chris Hani, Govan Mbeki, Oliver Tambo, Mbuyiselo Ngwenda, Pumzile Gomomo and Solomon Mahlangu, who all died in the month of April.
Singing and dancing, they joined SACP members in other parts of the country in holding the celebrations.
Nqatha said: “They were great men. They knew what it meant to be true to the organisation. They fought and died for the unity of the alliance. Each component of the alliance is independent but we must work together.
“White people will never govern this country again unless the alliance does not see eye to eye.”
