Herman Mashaba has lambasted Cyril Ramaphosa for describing the commission as cathartic for the ANC, further suggesting that it was meant to lead to arrests.
Leader of ActionSA, Herman Mashaba took to Twitter on Friday, 30 April 2021, to reflect on the second day of President Cyril Ramaphosa’s testimony at the State Capture Commission. The second day saw Ramaphosa continuing to testify in his capacity as the president of the African National Congress (ANC), with some claiming that he was treated with kid gloves.
However, Mashaba’s biggest gripe with the testimony appears to have been Ramaphosa’s description of the commission as an emotional experience for the ANC. The president went as far as claiming that it is a “cathartic moment” for the ANC that is meant to usher in a sense of renewal for the party.
Mashaba highlighted that the commission was not set out to be an emotional experience, instead, it should lead to arrests and accountability for those implicated in corruption. Mashaba stated, “The commission was not supposed to be a ‘cathartic moment’ for your cadres. It should be an incarceration moment.”

What an insult.
This commission was not meant to be a "cathartic moment" for your cadres.
It should lead to an "incarceration moment"! https://t.co/TYylUR6X6w
