SACP rallies to defend Ramaphosa as leaked email on funding hits headlines
News24 reported about email leaked which show that the president was integral to the fundraising for his campaign to become African National Congress (ANC) leader.
At the weekend, News24 reported on leaked emails which showed that Ramaphosa was integral to the fundraising for his campaign to become African National Congress (ANC) president.
This was despite the president telling the Public Protector that he was not involved in the process.
The SACP was adamant that the president was under attack and vowed to be his line of defence.
During his address to delegates at the party’s 98th-anniversary celebrations in Mpumalanga, the SACP’s Blade Nzimande said there were attempts to discredit Ramaphosa.
“There is a huge attempt to try and displace comrade Cyril because he is seen to be pursuing all the wrong things that have been done,” Nzimande said.
ALLIANCE UNDER DISTRESS
Nzimande said the ANC was on its knees, adding that the alliance was in distress.
He said counter-revolutionaries were seeking to destabilise the ANC and its allies from within the party.
“Our movement is under distress, as communists, we must not fool ourselves, it is under distress. The movement is divided and fighting among itself,” Nzimande said.
