The ANC is today at war with self. Members of ANC branches grouped under #OccupyLuthuliHouse have gathered at the Beyers Naudé Square in Johannesburg after calling their march to the party’s headquarters off fearing a  a possible ❝bloodbath❞. Instead the movement decided to hand over a memorandum to the ANC


The #OccupyLuthuli house planned a protests to the ANC headquarters demanding the immediate recall of President Jacob Zuma who is currently in China for the G20 Summit and for the party’s national executive committee to resign.

ANC Youth League, the Womens League and the Military Veterans vowed to defend the ANC against the disgruntled members calling them cowards and a faction.

In 1994, Nelson Mandela called on ANC supporters to protect the headquarters of the party at Shell House from Johannesburg Inkatha Freedom Party  supporters who were planning an attack. 19 people were killed.  The Nugent Commission of Inquiry later found that the shooting by ANC guards was unjustified.
