“Therefore, no one single individual controls the party. The party structure belongs to the party. I have heard of some insinuations that some individuals control the party’s structure. Is that true?
“The party’s structure belongs to the State, it belongs to the State means, whoever is saying that the party’s structure belongs to individuals, is telling a big lie from the pit of hell.
