Factions? Which factions?
ANC's whip leader Pemmy Majodina and Secretary-General Ace Magashule denied on Wednesday that the list of nominations for Parliament's committee chairmen was the result of a balancing act between factions.
Statements were announced on Wednesday after a meeting of the ANC committee earlier in the day.
This while MPs and former ministers during President Zuma's term as president, who are apparently resistant to eradicating the capture of the state and who are not warming themselves in the rays of the new dawn, will preside over some committees.
"When we approach the deployment, we do not approach deployment in a factional way," Majodina said.
"Because deployed here are the ANC members who got out of the conference process on the list," she added.
"Experience, capacity, new people, women and young people are considered in the act of balance.
"Not really being led through faction groups. We do not consider that."
Magashule was singing from the same hymn sheet.
"As the chief whip said, we do not put people on a faction basis. So that analysis is not correct," he said.
"The ANC staff, we are very happy that we have worked together very consistently. We have just read in the media that SG [secretary general] is going this way, the president is going down this path, is not it. "
He also had some media advice: "Focus on SONA [State of the Nation Address], rather than individuals. Give the president this space and time. "
