ANC Party Secretary General Barrack Muluka resigns.

ANC Party Secretary General and political analyst Barrack Muluka has on Wednesday August 12 resigned from his position at the party.

In a statement Muluka has also denounced his position as a Member of the Musali Mudavadi led party stating that he would move on to other ventures.

“This is my formal resignation letter as both the secretary-general and a member of the Amani National Congress (ANC). I hereby instruct the registrar of political parties to strike out my name in both capacities”.

“As part of giving you the necessary latitude on the arduous political journey ahead, I have now elected to step aside and move on to other horizons,” part of his statement read.

Muluka also made it clear in the statement that he would not be joining any other political outfit having copied the registrar of political parties in his communique.

Muluika resigns days after the party adopted a new constitution stating that he had served to the nest of his ability when he was Secretary General.

“This will allow you to make critical decisions on the population and leadership of the party under the new constitution,” he addressed to Mudavadi.

In July, the party’s Governing Council endorsed party leader Musalia Mudavadi as its Presidential flag bearer in the 2022 General Elections.

Muluka confirmed that delegates had empowered Mudavadi to seek, consider, negotiate and enter and/or leave any coalitions or alliances with other parties willing to work with ANC both ahead of and after the 2022 General Elections.

When taking up his secretary general position in 2018, Muluka faced opposition as his appointment was quashed by the Political parties’ Dispute Tribunal with nominated MP Godfrey Osotsi retaining the post. The decision was later overturned.

During his time in the party, the outgoing secretary general saw to the publishing of Mudavadi biography Soaring Above The Storms of Passion as well as reorganization and strengthening of the party.
