OSA Chief Activist, Mmusi Maimane has penned an open letter to President Ramaphosa, highlighting the flaws in the ruling party and the need for a cabinet change.
One SA (OSA) Chief Activist, Mmusi Maimane, on Thursday, 22 July 2021, published an open letter addressed to President Cyril Ramaphosa. In the letter, Maimane expressed his disappointment and called for Ramaphosa to re-consider his cabinet. Maimane called many African National Congress (ANC) flaws out, including the negligence on the part of the government when it came to the violent looting and protests that took place last week.
Maimane stated that in a time of crisis, the president and his cabinet ministers chose internal ANC battles over the safety and security of South Africans, calling it inexcusable. He called out Police Minister, Bheki Cele for an ill-prepared and under-resourced police service, which he stated were bystanders amid the chaos.
Maimane further stated that State Security Minister, Ayanda Dlodlo was outsmarted and outwitted by a small group of what he described as domestic terrorists, as well as Defence Minister, Nosiviwe Mapisa-Nqakula for the delayed deployment of the army. Maimane believes that these three ministers need to go and has called on the president to consider a cabinet change, as he holds the constitutional power to select and dismiss cabinet ministers.
