Jackson Mthembu who is the African National Congress (ANC) chief whip in parliament said the party’s poor performance in August local polls, factionalism and the recent fraud charges against Gordhan had motivated his decision. “When I said the entire ANC leadership… I meant everybody, myself included, (and) President Zuma,” Mthembu told eNCA television news channel.
