Mmusi Maimane Throws Shots At Mzansi Politicians- "Stomach Politicians."

The leader of the One South Africa(OSA) Movement, Mmusi Maimane took it to his Twitter account to throw serious bombshells at some of the politicians in South Africa, he claimed the South Africa politics are full of politicians who are only in it to put food on the table. Even though he did not specify anything, it can be suggested that he was referring to all the leaders within South African politics.

“Our politics is full of leaders trying to knock out the people instead of trying to knock out poverty, to knock out corruption and to knock out unemployment. They don’t fight with the heart; they fight for their stomachs. It’s mkhana season because eating is the agenda,” said Maimane.

Maimane accused South Africans politicians of only being in the politics to put food on the table and that makes sense. The amount of corruption and fraud that exists within South African politics is the perfect example that a lot of politicians are only in it for their benefit.

Over the last year, several South African ministers were proved to have been involved in dodgy corruption dealings. Just like the former minister, Zweli Mkhize and the digital vibes saga. Some perfect example of the “Stomach politicians" has to be Ace Magashule, Sindiswa Gomba, and Sandile Gumede as they were all once charged with corruption charges.

According to investigations compiled by the Special Investigative Unit(SUI), it was found that an estimated 127 government officials have been involved in the PPE tenders related to corruption that is worth about 3 billion. As if that is not enough, only a half of the implicated officials may face the music, at least that is according to an article published by Mail&Guardian.

With the local government elections approaching, Mmusi Maimane was most likely trying to discredit South African politicians to create chances for an independent candidate under the OSA movement.
