“Like I said before, we are going back to the drawing board, if it requires us to take action, we will take necessary action but I want to assure the ANC supporters that we all have faith and trust in our leadership under President Zuma. These kids (ANCYL) who are calling for hurried decisions must take a deep sleep and wake up when a decision is made, they have to be careful with what they say in front of cameras and South Africans.
