DA lays criminal charges against ANC delegation for abuse of state resources

Published on

The DA has confirmed that it has laid criminal charges against the ANC delegation that travelled to Zimbabwe using state resources.

The Democratic Alliance (DA) took to Twitter on Wednesday, 16 September 2020, to release a statement announcing its intention to lay criminal charges against the African National Congress (ANC) delegation that travelled to Zimbabwe. Later that day, the party then confirmed that it has laid charges for the delegation’s “abuse” of a state aircraft, as well as flouting lockdown regulations. Initially, the party had called for the immediate dismissal of Minister Nosiviwe Mapisa-Nqakula, after the ruling party admitted to its “unusual travel” methods.

The criminal charges laid against the ANC delegation are founded primarily on a video clip of the party’s Secretary-General, Ace Magashule pointedly denying the abuse of state resources and funds on the “Military Uber” trip. Magushule’s denial in the video, which is believed to have been taken on their arrival back from the trip, contradicts the statement the party released on Tuesday, 15 September 2020. In the statement, the ANC admitted to its wrongdoing and vowed to reimburse the state for the costs incurred.
