Are opportunists infiltrating the ANC at local level?

Over the last few years, the ANC branch in the area where I live has slowly changed its composition. Crooks and assorted power-hungry scumbags have managed to climb to the top.

Over the last few weeks, I have heard that another unqualified individual has started angling for a nomination. If he gets it, he will probably be elected to the metro council.

Although I don't condone the rioting that seems to have become a common occurrence in South Africa, I do understand the frustration of people who have no practical alternatives to an ANC which has been infiltrated by careerists who don't care about their constituents' welfare.
