Democratic Alliance (DA) Leader on Thursday reiterated that the events of the past 24 hours, with the hand-over of the independent panel’s report into the Phala Phala allegations, represent a seismic shift in South African politics.
Stennhuisen further said once again, a sitting President stands accused of breaching the constitution. “The authors of the report do not believe that President Ramaphosa’s explanation about the source of the hidden money was truthful, and they believe that the President interfered with the investigation to keep it quiet”.
Steenhuisen said If President Ramaphosa is recalled now, “we’ll end up with a corrupt President Mabuza. If President Ramaphosa survives until their elective conference but is defeated then, we could end up with a corrupt President Mkhize. “South Africans should not have to choose between the Phala Phala corruption of Cyril Ramaphosa, the Digital Vibes corruption of Zweli Mkhize or the Mafia state of David Mabuza”.
He continued to add that they cannot leave it up to 4000 “bribed and compromised” delegates at an ANC conference to choose the future of our country. “That choice has to be made by all the people of South Africa in an early election”.
