DA questions Cyril Ramaphosa’s silence on SANDF Airforce jet saga

Published on

The DA has moved on from asking President Cyril Ramaphosa to clarify the alleged misuse of the SANDF Airforce jet, and is now highlighting his silence on the matter.

The Democratic Alliance (DA) took to Twitter on Friday, 11 September 2020, to continue problematizing the African National Congress (ANC) delegation’s use of the South African National Defence Force (SANDF) Airforce jet to travel to Zimbabwe, allegedly for non-state affairs. Initially, the DA released a statement asking the president to clarify how and why the matter was permitted.

In a series of tweets since then, the leading opposition party has problematized Ramaphosa’s silence, stating, “Over 48 hours have now passed since the scandalous revelation that ANC officials used a state military jet like an ‘Uber’ to Harare on party business. Ramaphosa remains absolutely silent on this abuse of power.”

The DA then suggested that his silence is a form of protection of his “cadres.” The party went on to highlight recent controversial developments that he failed to publicly address and remedy, such as Zandile Gumede’s deployment and his spokesperson, Khusela Diko’s PPE scandal.
