Ramaphosa: Those who steal government funds must be 'exposed & jailed'
ANC President Cyril Ramaphosa addressed a crowd at a rally in kwaNobuhle, Eastern Cape.
Ramaphosa addressed the crowd after officiating at the official Freedom Day celebrations in his capacity as state president in Makhanda earlier.
He joined the party to campaign in kwaNobuhle later in the afternoon.
"At local government... we want those who steal money to be exposed and jailed because corruption is bad. Those who steal money are stealing your money which is supposed to go to service delivery and work for you. So we are saying we want that to end," he said.
Those who stole and looted our resources in SOEs meant to better the lives of our people will and must be arrested. They belong in jail not amogst the people they stole from.— #VoteANC (@MYANC) April 27, 2019
