Ramaphosa will later respond to these allegations against him.

President Cyril Ramaphosa has indicated he will comment on the allegations against him after Eskom's former chief operating officer Brian Molefe completed his testimony before the Zondo Commission of Inquiry into state capture.

According to Molefe, Ramaphosa also benefited from state capture through the layers of complexity at the power giant.

According to Molefe, Ramaphosa is guilty of state capture due to the cases between Eskom and Optimum Coal at the time that Ramaphosa was a shareholder in this mine.

Furthermore, Ramaphosa was the chairman of the council before he was elected president.

Ramaphosa announced earlier in January that he would step down from his position as president if convicted of coup d'etat.



EFF slams government over its vaccination program

The EFF issued a statement against President Cyril Ramaphosa and Health Minister DR. Zweli Mkhize talks about the country's vaccination program yet to kick off.

This follows after it came to light that health care providers are currently going through phase 3B of the clinical trials of the Johnson & Johnson vaccine and have not yet started the vaccination program.

According to the EFF, the vaccinations are advertised as "Phase 1 of the vaccination program" on social media, when in fact it is still in a testing phase.

The EFF requests that the government make the public aware of this, and the fact that the vaccine must first go through the clinical trials before it is approved by the South African Health Products Authority, or SAHPRA.

The EFF further demands that Mkhize be removed from his position as Minister of Health of the country.
