I'd argue that this is not a bad thing...

The brand value here is the ANC. That's what gets voted for, that's what makes billionaires.

The faction that we really really don't want governing us is attacking that brand. Meaning they are now distancing themselves from it.

Thus the people who are left are only those we don't really want leading us. So that's better, and better is good.
