Mmusi Maimane took to Twitter to suggest that corruption is systemic in the ruling party, further suggesting that no ANC official is exonerated from corruption.
Chief Activist of One South Africa Movement (OSA), Mmusi Maimane took to Twitter on Thursday, 4 March 2021, to suggest that corruption is systemic in the African National Congress (ANC). The suggestion comes in light of the ministers that were initially perceived to be innocent of corruption being implicated in corrupt actions.
Maimane referenced Minister of Health, Zweli Mkhize’s latest implication in questionable dealings. Mkhize was recently accused of awarding an R80 million tender to a communications company, Digital Vibes, that appears to be owned by his long-time family friend and former executive assistant.
He used Minister Naledi Pandor as an example, as well as the Gauteng Member of the Executive Committee (MEC) for Education, Panyaza Lesufi, who has been questioned on the R341 million that was allegedly used to decontaminate schools. The suggestion supports Maimane’s calls for independent candidates to run in the elections, as he believed they would be easily removed from office if implicated in corruption, rather than the current status quo.

There are no good guys in the ANC.
There is systemic and endemic corruption within its structures.
