Ramaphosa battles corruption in ANC
President Cyril Ramaphosa has warned South Africa’s ruling African National Congress (ANC) leaders, who have been implicated in various corruption-probing to account.
The corruption probe commission is currently underway to unveil those alleged of corruption among the ANC’s leadership.
Ramaphosa, who is the party’s president, said this when he launched the ANC manifesto in the Northern Cape Province.
Speaking to hundreds of supporters at the Galshewe Stadium in Kimberley‚ a town known for its diamond mines, Ramaphosa said the corruption and wrongdoing revealed at the commissions must never happen again, adding the truth revealed at the inquiries “must set us free”.
“Those among us that have been found to have been involved in wrongdoing must come forward themselves and be accountable for what they may have done”.
Ramaphosa said the country could not return to the wrong things revealed at the various commissions.
“We want to truly change our ways‚” he said.
Ramaphosa’s comments followed similar views expressed on Friday evening at an ANC gala dinner in Kimberly that the commissions of inquiry were a moment of redemption for the ANC government.
The Zondo commission of inquiry investigating state capture has heard how senior ANC leaders were bribed or benefited from corruption-accused company like Bosasa.
We want to hear from you all.
