Leroy Thorpe - Failed Leadership
When Thorpe was the chair of ANC2C, he ran it like a personal fiefdom. Community members who he did not want to speak were not allowed to speak or were shouted down. His leadership of the ANC was irresponsible. After being defeated at the ballot box in 2006, he continued to run the ANC by proxy. He was appointed as "parliamentarian" by the new ANC2C chair Doris Brooks, who always waited for him to whisper instructions in her ear before doing anything. Thorpe and Brooks tried and failed to prevent the public from videotaping ANC meetings. Why are they so afraid of openness? ANC meetings during the period when Thorpe was "parliamentarian" were a travesty.
