African National Congress (ANC) president Cyril Ramaphosa has promised party members that ANC leaders and members who take it upon themselves to steal money and are implicated in corruption will be dealt with decisively.
Ramaphosa was speaking ahead of the ruling party’s birthday celebration on Saturday.
“Nelson Mandela would have wanted us to rid the ANC of corruption, to make sure the ANC becomes attractive to the people of South Africa once again.”
And he says that for the ANC to be attractive again it must take tough action.
“We must deal with that.”
Ramaphosa centered his speech around unity, calling on ANC leaders to stop fighting and speaking in different voices and be united, while calling on ANC members to respect the new leadership.
“We must end infighting amongst ANC members. We, as the leadership, must be united and we must speak with one voice.”
