Leader of the Economic Freedom Fighters, Julius Malema has weighed in on Free State Premier Oscar Mabuyane's R450 000 corruption case following the exposé by the Public Protector Busisiwe Mkwebane.
Malema said Oscar Mabuyane is such a corrupt fellow who stole money from the Mandela family at a time they were grieving.
He however lamented that Eastern Cape is one of the provinces with the most corrupt ANC officials yet they are never arrested for the state funds they keep on stealing.
"We are very happy now that Oscar is being exposed. Oscar is one such a corrupt fellow. Eastern Cape is one of the most corrupt provinces, but you never hear of any prominent arrests.
COVID-19, people were pushing wheelbarrows and calling them ambulances till today no one has been arrested. So we don't understand why Eastern Cape leaders are not being arrested when they are the most corrupt. They are shielding each other, they are protecting each other," said Malema.
Although the corruption case of Oscar Mabuyane came out as a surprise to many who thought he was the only white sheep in the Eastern Cape province, to people like Ace Magashule this information was only a matter of time before it came out to the public officially.
Ace Magashule once exposed that Oscar Mabuyane is one of the people who benefitted from CR17 funds in 2017 among others whose names are sealed in the CR17 bank statements.
Ace Magashule revealed that ANC Eastern Cape Premier Oscar Mabuyane was one of the ANC top officials who interacted with a man known as Bam who wrote to the ANC Top 6 narrating how he got paid by three municipalities in the Eastern Cape without doing any work.
The man named Bam is said to have provided bank statements, opened cases with the Hawks but nothing was done.
Julius Malema was right when he articulated that ANC's most corrupt officials in Eastern Cape are never arrested as they shield one another.
