EFF spokesman Vuyani Pambo was speaking in response to the president’s letter to other members of the African National Congress (ruling ANC), in which he urged them to end corruption, in particular to the current abuse of tenders for personal protective equipment against Covid-19.
In this letter released yesterday Monday, Ramaphosa urged party officials involved in the abuses to step down from public office in government or relinquish their party roles until allegations against them are clarified.
However, Pambo said the President’s letter to ANC officials was “nothing but a cheap stance.”
“It is hypocritical for Ramaphosa to call on ANC members to step down from public office if they are accused of corruption,” Pambo said.
Opposition official said Ramaphosa has no moral authority to speak out against corruption as he fights tooth and nail to cover up documents that implicate big business that allegedly judges in buying his mandate to the Presidency.
