African National Congress (ANC) President Cyril Ramaphosa is expected to deliver the party’s fraternal message at the 15th National Congress of the South African Communist Party (SACP) in Boksburg, east of Johannesburg, on Friday.
It will be another warm welcome for President Ramaphosa at one of the alliance meetings. Outgoing SACP Secretary-General Dr Blade Nzimanade had earlier called for the criminal case to be opened against the President.
Nzimande says the party welcomes President Ramaphosa’s decision to investigate himself by law enforcement agencies.
Last month, former spy boss Arthur Fraser has opened a criminal case against Ramaphosa in connection with the 2020 raid on his Phala Phala farm in Limpopo.
Nzimande says Fraser sets a bad precedent by using information obtained during his deployment in the factional government.
Outgoing Secretary-General Blade Nzimande says Fraser did not report the case as a way to fight corruption, but intends to destabilize the ANC government:
ANC Integrity Committee chairman George Mashamba has vowed to take advantage of the president’s presence at the SACP meeting to ask him to appear before his committee.
‘Corruption and faction prediction’
Addressing delegates at the conference on Thursday, South African trade union president Zingiswa Losi begged delegates to help cleanse the African National Congress (ANC) of what they called “demons of factionalism and corruption”.
She said alliance partners should stop mobilizing in defense of criminals who steal from the poor.
Losi said that if the status quo is allowed to remain, the ANC runs the risk of losing the 2024 national elections, adding that those found guilty of injustice should stop hiding behind the political conspiracy.
