JOHANNESBURG – African National Congress (ANC) Deputy President Cyril Ramaphosa has condemned corruption within the party and blamed it for the slow pace in the fight against unemployment in the country.

The deputy president told supporters that corruption and the fight for the control of resources as the cause for division in the party.

“What causes us to be divided is to compete for resources.”
